I can get about 190'ish as well in my IDE comfortably. Which gives me two
side-by-side 80 column windows with a bit of extra space. Also the project
manager bit takes up some room as well. Sadly, my eyes are not as good as
they used to be and as I get older my fonts get larger.

I think that style would take a lot of getting used to, though I guess
I can see how for functions with a lot of params it is easier to read!
