How Many Screens Does One Man Need?

This guy thinks he has a lot of screens in his life? Apparently he's never met some of you guys. Hell, look through our display forums, there are people that have six monitors on their main rig, three on their secondary PC, a laptop or two and several tablet / phone devices. How many screens do you have in your life?

Is 8 Enough? After all, I already have at least eight screens in my regular rotation. And that doesn’t count spares, backups and obsolete or little-used devices still hanging around the house. Nor does it include the many devices owned and used by other members of my household آ– don’t ask, that number is truly shocking. Still, I know that eight is an absurd collection of screens for one person. Or is it?
