Angband in what kind of hardware

Which kind of hardware you play angband? If you use term windows which one?

I'm asking that because my old monitor retired itself and I bought a new one with much bigger screen resolution and size, and now I don't know what to do with all that extra space. Playing full-screen games feel weird (after playing few hours MoO2 everything looked a bit stretched because this new one is wide-screen monitor).

I play on a win7 box with a widescreen monitor, or a small hp netbook with ubuntu 10.something, or my G1 phone.

EDIT:

10x20 font as well, but I don't maximize the window or have any of the terms up, just use judicious use of look and the item/monster list commands

Vista widescreen 22" desktop, with msgs, monster list and object list windows open on the side. Or 9" netbook Asus T91MT, with same setup ... but very small font size.

I use my 32" flatscreen tv as my monitor. I normally use 10x20x font size and no term windows.

I have two displays, both widescreen. One has the dungeon; the other has a few terms (monster recall, inventory/equip, item list, monster list) and a lot of leftover space for other programs.

Same term-window setup as Ewert: monster list + object list + messages on the borders of the screen - btw, it is slightly easier on the eye if you put them on the left of your main term.
But for some odd reasons I play the Windows versions under Linux using wine...

Linux, one window, default size, compiled with the X11 interface. I tend to prefer Arch or other distros that install development headers by default, as it makes the compiling easier.

The essential term-window for my playstyle, is the monster list. I have screen space for one more term-window, but little idea what to set it to to make it useful.

This works for Win7 (and historically Vista, W2K, and Win95). I haven't done a Knoppix (Linux LiveDVD distribution that ships with gcc) build, but I expect similar screen usage when booting into Knoppix for angband.
