,----[ Quote ]
| Ever wished you had two monitor setup for  
| desktop so that you can improve your work 
| efficiency.Or do you have a spare monitor 
| at home which you are planning to sell? 
| Wait, if you are running Linux and wish to 
| have a multi-monitor setup(dual station)  
| here is something interesting.Yes, i am 
| talking about dual-station PC.
| The Free version of software called  
| Userful Multiplier can easily transform 
| your dual-monitor linux PC into a dual-
| station PC.Meaning , if you already have a 
| dual-monitor setup, you can now transform 
| it into two different working stations with 
| Useful Multiplier.
| The software basically incorporates set of  
| Linux software packages that can extend the 
| X Window System to support upto 10 fully 
| independent workstations using your single 
| PC.


That counts as just one Linux machine.


Proper Multi-Seat X Support Is On The Way

,----[ Quote ]
| While multi-seat computing has been available on Linux for years, it's often
| been a chore to setup and required some time. Beyond just being time
| consuming and an unnecessary hassle, the way of setting up a multi-seat
| computer through an X Server with multiple nested Xephyr servers is not
| pleasant. There have been several attempts at improving the multi-seat Linux
| experience by creating a multi-seat display manager and taking various other
| steps, but to date this is still a challenge to setup. The good news though
| is that this may soon change.



The Multi-Seat Display Manager

,----[ Quote ]
| For those interested in configuring a multi-seat system with multiple
| monitors, keyboards, and mice, they can build the Multi-Seat Display Manager
| from git, use the provided Debian packages, or try out their Ubuntu 8.04
| LiveCD with MDM pre-installed.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
