Microsoft Bill Gates himself writes about how he works in his office. "It's pretty incredible to look back 30 years to when Microsoft (Research) was starting and realize how work has been transformed. We're finally getting close to what I call the digital workstyle. If you look at this office, there isn't much paper in it. On my desk I have three screens, synchronized to form a single desktop. I can drag items from one screen to the next. Once you have that large display area, you'll never go back, because it has a direct impact on productivity."

How about this, Bill; Switch to Linux. You no longer need 3 monitors. KDE can have as many desktops as you you want.

How about virtual desktops has nothing to do nor can replace multiple monitors. Not to mention that KDE or Linux have nothing to do with Bill Gates?

If your comment was imbued with sarcasm, I failed to see it. If not, you're talking sh**.

Brilliant idea! I'll get rid of my second monitor at work and just do virtual desktops! Man, it will be so easy to have documentation on one scree--oops, desktop--- and writing code on another.
