Why does every developer use two computers on their desk at same time?

I see a lot of answers which seem to say that is because the programmers are LAZY. Which is completely wrong in my opinion. [Being lazy is something you should be ashamed of, and not brag about] You are lazy when you do less work. Doing the same work in less time makes you more EFFICIENT. And I believe the answer to the question is EFFICIENCY. Having two screens provides you with extra work space, which lets you get more work done. Let me list some of the cases where I find it personally useful having multiple screens. Comparing code or documents. When you are either comparing code or document, its always better to compare side-by-side. You do not want to be switching back and forth between files. It is more error prone and takes more time. Referring to other content. When you are writing code and you are referring something (google, a PDF, your previous code, someone else's code), it is easier to have it open on a second screen other than the one your typing on. Its good if you want to copy paste content or to see and type. Monitoring. Checking logs at the same time you are executing code, its always better if you have the both on different screens, side-by-side. You have both screens up at the same time and you can see exactly whats going on. Makes you look cool. Lets admit it, a guy typing away at his workstation with multiple screens in front of him always cooler then the guy sitting staring at his tiny laptop screen.

Type on PDF: All You Need to Know

When you're using these techniques, you can get all the benefits below, but also avoid some drawbacks: Less work. Sometimes it is useful to be able to put your keyboard down for a moment, and just do something you can do normally. It is better than leaving work to wait for everything to finish. For example, if a lot of stuff got done simultaneously, you only get to see one thing all the time. No extra work. If you work in a team, one screen is just something not useful. Working on a new feature and debugging it simultaneously with other team members is much better than putting the focus on the feature on my laptop instead of the others. Reduction of error-prone mistakes. Your first screen may look bad, but it is usually the best error-prone screen. You can usually go on and do something else, and you get to go.
