Once upon a time, open floor space was the most common configuration - watch some old "office" movies and see how they have their workers arranged. Honestly, Cubicles suffer from being "good enough" - looking at the prices they get for cubicles, I can really see how Pixar decided to offer it's workers an alternative to cubicles...
