Graphics, User Interfaces "Recently, Brendan and I have been arguing about what can reasonably be expected from a multi-monitor OS (among other graphical stack things). We've reached the conclusion that nothing replaces real-world user data. So anyone interested, please answer this survey about multi-monitor setups and expectations ! (Results will be published here once the amount of answers has reached a steady state, I'd say in a month at worst)" (Source)

MultiMonitor / MultiOS setup

I have 3 24" monitors setup up horizontally.

2 Monitors are attached to one machine running xubuntu w/ati-amd + xinerama (different backgrounds yayy!).

1 Monitor running off my older MacbookPro with the mouse and keyboard "attached" to the linux box via "synergy". No moving windows but cut and paste works!

Nice to have code on one screen and output on the other + 3rd for misc stuff and testing.
