I have been converted to the horizontal flow, I admit. I must say it still brings me great joy when I open an old workflow that is still in the vertical orientation and if someone sends me one, I gladly work that way.
Vertical! I started off with vertical a long time ago so old workflows stayed that way. New workflows start off in horizontal, I never bothered to change the orientation, I don't think much more about it and continue on.
I saw all the horizontal fans so I had to chime in and say definitely VERTICAL! Why, because the Join tool has Left and Right inputs not top and bottom inputs!!! If you are using horizontal and turn your head to the left so that the workflow looks vertical, the L anchors are on the right..aaaahhh!
For flows with 2 or fewer data sets I go horizontal but for workflows with multiple data sets its vertical all the way. I can follow a complex data blending work flow much better if it looks like a funnel pairing everything down to one complete data extract at the bottom. I can also consistently align all of my comments to the right of any tools instead of above or below.
