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)

Ive got an 24 at work, no way I need anything more than that: Thanks to awesomewm.

Without awesome (tiling wm) I would probably need 2 or 3x24", but what the heck.. If you have a big screen already, try a tiling wm before buying an extra screen, you'll be amazed to see how much space is used on useless bars, crap and blank space, and how useful it is to have tiling + several "desktops". I love the way awesome works. Switching "desktops" and moving programs around is done with keyboard shortcuts and is probably faster than turning head to a second screen:p awesome <3

Two screens + traditional wm + a lot of open windows = sounds like a unproductive mess to me.
