I got sick of not having enough desk space so am buying up stuff to build myself a new desk which will be 1980mm by 760mm (78" x 30"). It got me wondering how much desk space you all have? I can tell from peoples posts that people are working in all kinds of different environments with different amounts of space.

I basically have a desk that wraps around my entire room with several "stations" I guess you could call. Two MacPros, charging station, printing station, Place for a couple laptops and an open spot for gear assembly and breakdown. 8 monitors all around. My needs are probably different than most lol.

Basically corner or L shaped workstation desks with matching straight desks to connect them.

That sounds really neat.

2 HD Tv's and two old Dell monitors, that could all be replaced with one 4k/5k/8k display if Apple would allow remote rendering of the Aqua interface with graphics acceleration.

Add it to a growing list of things Linux can do that Apple refuses to embrace.

I love to use the macOS as my desktop OS, but these days I find Linux more useful as a utility OS.

Right now I'm running Debian, with two Qemu VM's with PCI Passthough, one for High Sierra, and one for Windows 10.

It works well, but it really has my computer space cluttered with extra Monitors KB's and mice.

If Apple would add the code for PCI Passthough to the macOS, allow OS X to run in a VM, rather than restricting the licensing term to prevent it, and release a tower with PCI-E slots, as well as adding the remote rendering of Aqua in VNC, I'd give my left n*t.

I have plenty of space since "upgrading" from a trash can mac pro to a cMP......No more external hard drives, external blu ray burner, wires, dongles and various power adaptors on my my desk!

I have a kidney bean shaped glass desk from Ikea, just 3 monitors and a cMP under my desk, which my cat likes to sit on top of!

The more horizontal space I have, the more crap I accumulate. I took down all the corporate office desk/table tops and now have just a 48x24” desk I brought in myself. It just large enough to hold the computer, external monitor and inputs and not much else. Keeps me clean.

I bought a cheap 36”X60” dining room table from a import store and carefully cut about six inches off of the legs and moved the front support farther in for knee room. This a DAW desk which includes a full size digital piano(controller) , 30” and a 27” displays, a few USB odds and ends and plenty of extra space. My mouse sits on a inverted computer display swivel arm connected to a piece of plywood with pad using two small shelf brackets and is clamped to the front right side of the table. I use an Apple Magic Keyboard with furniture floor pads sitting on the fully weighted piano keybed or above the keybed.

Haha man I'm the opposite, the less space I have the more disorganised I am. I need to have everything in an organised space without being cramped.
