Re: [ljc] Open Plan Offices

So at jClarity we *roughly* have our workspace as the guy proposes in his post:

The best, in my opinion, are small group offices, where individual teams are assigned, their backs to each other, and a small conference table in the middle. The team can close the door to eliminate distractions, they can work together in pairs or small groups as needed and separate as needed. They don't need to screw around reserving conference rooms for group meetings and/or presentations. If done right, they'll have plenty of personal space, and not feel like somebody is about to come up behind them and choke them from behind throughout the day.

We need to think on this some more - but it seems to work pretty well for us

Just wondering what developers' thoughts are on open plan offices. In my opinion there is no reason for developers
to sit right next to business analysts who talk all day on the phone.
What are your thoughts?
What is the best environment to work in for a developer?
