I like my comfy chair. Sure, I would be fine using one, but, while wearing shoes that were like having someone standing on my feet the entire time probably contributed to it, I couldn't stand four hours at a standing desk at work last year, so I wouldn't be able to use one exclusively.

It would probably be better for me, but I couldn't do it at work or somewhere where I'd have to wear shoes, and I sure as shit am far too lazy to spend all my time at home standing.

Seems pretty cool to me, but I won't go for it unless there's a legit stand for the PC, I don't want to make one out of boxes and books

Maybe to read\write stuff. But i don't think it's comfortable for the wrist to use the mouse in that position.

It would be good for me, but I much prefer my comfortable chair.

20% shorter life span? Totally worth it.

It's actually unhealthy to stand still for too long. If you do it long enough you will faint eventually because there will be not enough blood flowing to your brain.

You must not do it anymore

Any of you who have worked in retail or fast food know that 8+ hour shifts of continuous standing are not fun. There is something very unpleasant about standing still for long periods at a time. A standing desk for a 1-2 hour period of use, where you walk around, should be more optimal for your productivity than a sit-down desk though.

Pffft, you guys are weak! I stand on average 9+ hours a day (I do manual labour, plus I play guitar, watch tv and play computer games standing up ). I find standing up more comfortable then sitting down.

Not true at all. Theres a rediculous amount of muscles used in your body just to maintain standing that people take for granted. Once you get used to it, you'll find sitting down to be annoying.

Btw - chairs have only been around for about 300-400 years. Before than, you would have either squatted or just stood about to chill.

This.

I'm on my feet for sometimes 10 hours a day, and **** that. Seriously **** that.
Your lower back starts to feel like it's gonna cave in, and your feet feel like they've been encased in concrete.
