It is very convenient. I like it this way.

Horizontal splitting would occur when GNU Emacs' frame is wide enough that two 
buffers side by side are so wide that text can be displayed in reasonably long 
lines. So by default the variable split-width-threshold has a value greater 
than 100, could be it's 160. By reducing that value it becomes more likely that 
insanely narrow windows are created.

        split-width-threshold is a variable defined in `window.el'.
        Minimum width for splitting windows sensibly.
        If this is an integer, `split-window-sensibly' may split a window
        horizontally only if it has at least this many columns.  If this
        is nil, `split-window-sensibly' is not allowed to split a window

See also split-height-threshold.

it's physics.
