Working styles have evolved today. With the dawn of the freelancing age, people now set up shop right at home rather than investing in a workplace which is costly. Instead, they opt for a multi-monitor setup where they can multitask on tasks rather than do just one at a time. This improves productivity and is also quite economic to execute since displays today have become very inexpensive.
