Multi-head Display

Hardware and software support for multi-head displays continues to improve. In practical terms, more and more computers under a wide variety of platforms allow you to extend your workspace (Desktop) to additional monitors. Most people do not take advantage of this convenient extension. Some even prefer to stick to virtual desktops (switching between several desktops within a single monitor), yet it is important to remember that what is out of sight is out of mind. With a large workspace, you need never minimise an application.

Next time you invest in a new workstation, ask the salesman about dual-head support. Going to the extreme, can anyone argue that the individual below does not enjoy playing Quake?
