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)

3 monitors, 2 connected to a Linux box, 1 connected to a Windows box, setup with one directly in front of me, and the other two on the sides of that.

The leftmost monitor is "screen 0" in Linux.
The centre monitor is "screen 1" in Linux.
The rightmost monitor is Windows.

Synergy is installed on both systems, so it's seamless mouse movement across all three monitors. ;)

Once I get my second Linux box setup, there will be a fourth monitor installed, shifting things slightly so that the seam between monitors 2 and 3 will be centred in front of me.
