comment Stuff every programmer needs while working
@Xepoch: i work for embedded devices. on a typical busy day i need to run the compiler+IDE of the microcontoller, the debugger to debug firmware, VS 2008 as editor (because the IDE comes with the compiler sucks and i'm comfortable with vs), firefox for internet, yahoo messenger, Omega TV - a custom software that can talk to the firmware, 2/3 windows explorer windows, 0-3 pdf/doc/xls files. now you guess why do i feel comfortable when work from home than office.

@Billy ONeal: i work in a PC having 15" LCD with response time 50ms. When i scroll a page with text i get irritated with the ghosting effect. and i agree, color reproduction and viewing angle are very important. the LCD spec i specified is actually taken from my own home pc. i can work more efficiently in home than in office.

@Xepoch, don't have idea what VT100 terminals are and what do you mean by run circles.... a fast machine will compile my code faster, will boot/restart my pc faster, will load applications faster, large ram will help to run several applications simultaneously etc.

@Jason, the word is too heavy to describe what i wanted though. :P but i prefer keyboard and mouse set with which typing and point-n-clicking is very comfortable.
