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)

When I got my 1st Acer 24" 1920x1200 LCD 3 years ago I matched it with a cheap & nasty Samsung 23" with 2048x1152. The Samsung pixels were 15%, a real productivity killer just to save a miserable $100.

Just swapped the silly thing for a Lenova that has 1920x1200 pixels and has a few nice features like 4 degrees of freedom, includes up/down and even 90deg all for $260. It has saved my sanity since windows can now be sized for one and slid across as needed. It also gets LED power levels from a better CFL tube design and is half as thick as the Acer. It's an engineers monitor rather than a pretty shiny model.

I wonder with HP leaving the PC scene what happens to their line of 1920x1200 monitors as that was the other option. This Lenova is a mature model (over the hill) and I really fear the 1200 pixel models completely going away for the horrid 1080 16x9 aspect models, even though they are cheap.

I see a few Haiku people here so is 2 head now possible or are those on a Linux development machine?
