80 is a good choice whatever the screen size, because it's about the
most efficient text width as far as eyes movements are concerned:  the
eye is much better at going top-bottom than left-right.  That's also why
printed papers still pick shorter columns and website design often do,
too.  If it's physically tiring to read your text, very few people will.

Now, 25 lines… maybe you should tweak your terminal setups, or consider
editing in a more comfortable environment :)
