Picture yourself in the 1960s in a musty office with hundreds of dusty tomes in every possible location...  I wonder what your "desktop setup " would look like. Phonograph, typewriter... topic for a new thread... ;)
Yeah if I wasn't able to use tab groups to manage it I would close moor of them
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.

Seems like you are using them more like bookmarks than anything else. Which only works because of tab groups. I actually switched from FF to Chrome when they killed the tab groups feature, I think I should try the addon and see if it works for me.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Home office, simple / minimalist.

Ikea swivel chair
Ikea table
Dell XPS 8500 (BF 2012 deal, still works great (added an SSD a few years back, (had an extra one on hand, not because things were slow))
2 LG 23" monitors
Dual monitor mount
Logitech K800 wireless illuminated keyboard
Logitech MX 2S mouse
Belkin WaveRest mouse pad
Wireless charger
Apple AirPods
Rolling that chair on carpet seems painful...
Is there a clever way to solicit likes without sounding like a classless wannabee?

The advantage of mine is that it is height adjustable and can be easily used sitting or standing and the keyboard tray helps with that.
What's the height range?
I have one of these at my office but I find it doesn't quite have the range I'd like. It would probably work better for someone a little shorter than me.

That is basically what I have but capable of holding 32 in monitors.

BTW for those trying to set up offices in NY,  he has lots of good stuff at good prices:

Phone: (718) 909-1188

Overstock from high end office remodels etc.

I bought a Sit-stand desk for $250 (MSRP $2000+), it's been very enjoyable to be able to switch to standing every once in a while.

If you have only a laptop, getting a USB-C monitor is worthwhile.

On this topic, Tree Style Tab and Multi-Account Containers are 2 other very useful FF add-ons
You could divide your work with windows 10 multiple virtual desktops

-Logitech MX Keys Advanced Wireless Illuminated Keyboard (Great keyboard!)
-Logitech MX Palm Rest (Fantastic for your wrists)
-Logitech MX3 (Best mouse by leaps and bounds)
-Fellowes PlushTouch Mouse Pad and Wrist Rest (Fantastic for your wrists)
-Bose QC35 (Essential for quarantine).

I checked again this morning and see that I actually took a pole from a different stand and combined it with the arms. This gives me much more height and I don't even use all off it.

Work setup:

Macbook Pro 15'
La-Z-Boy Savona chair
Rollo thermal label printer - awesome
Brother MFCL2750DW laser printer - piece of garbage
Nespresso Breville Essenza Mini - makes a good espresso but not a great machine

Herman Miller store shows price of about $1600. What kind of discount are we talking about at local distributor?

What made you settle on this chair? Did you look into the Steelcase Gesture or the Herman Miller Aeron?

I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.
