>Now that I think about it Id prefer to have a two smaller monitor setup
which I could fix to the wall above the desk. I have this setup at work
whereby I can drag windows oops panes from one screen to the other this
is handy for having say a spreadsheet of tests on one screen and the app
under test on the other. The other cool thing this can do is switch the
monitor from one pc to another so in this setting each screen displays
for just one pc. I think this is called twin head? I vaguely remember
seeing this mentioned in Linux Format Magazine so there must be a Linux
implementation around. The monitors we have in work (NEC I think) has
a button to press to move from pc1 to pc2 is there some cunning way that
this switching can be done via software so any monitor could be used?
