Agree with your "Nonsense", but the vast majority of display devices currently used are 16:9. I actually quite like 32:9, and you can buy monitors with that aspect ratio, maybe even cameras soon, although not with 32:9 sensors.

I'd be happier with 4:3, but the best I can do is 16:10.

I hate the horizontal-slit 16:9. Good only for spreadsheets and the appropriate movie format. But it seems it is easier/cheaper for the monitor manufacturers.

Would a 4²:3² monitor make you feel happier?

I think you might have got to the root of it there
