Please provide pointers to studies backing that up.  I've never known
that to be the case.

I generally never use apps in full-screen mode on my Windows machines,
slide-shows typically being the exception.

I use 1920x1200 monitors (both on the desktops and the laptop).  I've
resized my browser so that e.g. the WordPress admin screens are at a
comfortable width to work on.

I don't really care what the WordPress default is, as long as it can be
modified with a plugin.  Of course, my preference would be for a fluid
layout like before, to match my current work habits.
