You like the extra wide format? I'm the opposite.

I first experienced it on a laptop. Great for movies, but I needed it for work. I had the choice of only seeing a relatively few lines of code/text with a readable font or looking at a whole page that was too small to read. I've gotten used to what are now the regular aspect ratio monitors, 16:9, but for working I found the old-format (4:3) even better.

Also - to make up for the deficit, above, one needs to get a very large monitor, indeed, and thus pay a premium and lose a lot of physical real-world territory to accommodate its excess bulk.

But, I can certainly accept that different work habit will optimize at different points.
