Taking care of business
When you run a company that develops software, it makes little to no sense to lump your developers with sub-standard machines and tiny monitors. Managers who wouldn’t bat an eyelid at buying a new Visual Studio (Thank God I’m a Java/Groovy developer) license, gasp in horror and say there’s no budget when you ask for a faster machine or a bigger/dual monitor setup. Those minutes you save every day doing tasks add up to hours over a week, which add up to days over a month, which add up to maybe even a whole month over a year (in your dreams!). Personally, I’d just use that extra time to browse YouTube.
