Wii Warm Up: Horizontal, or vertical?

This might be a dumb question, but how do you have your Wii set up? Sure, when we look at the many contents of the Wii console's packaging, we see that Nintendo provided ample materials so that you may set our console up in the fashion you see above: vertical. Standing tall and proud like Mufasa on the edge of Pride Rock, the Wii commands a presence in any person's A/V set-up.

But, just because Nintendo made it easy, doesn't mean that you chose that path, right? Maybe you travel with your Wii a lot and when it is resting at home, you lay it down on its side horizontally? Maybe the console stand isn't in line with your house's decor or you think the rubber feet on the Wii itself is suitable enough for its placement on some wooden table or, dare we say, carpet?

Either way, it seems like such a small question, but one which would provide an insightful answer. To us, anyway.
