I like to keep mine simple. Background picture is home made, I have a series of them, same scene, sunrise/sunset/midday/midnight. Widescreen.
I can't work on it if it's too busy. And if I have to, I'll use an x-win type switcher.

It's been a while since I've taken some good screenshots but I haven't really updated my setups much anyways. These and others can be found in my screenshots gallery.


Main desktop/workstation (dual monitors)...

Display :0.0


Display :0.1



My laptop...

PLayers have to suck it up and realize hockey doesn't facilitate the payments of bbal and football players. BEfore the lockout can end the hockey players have to realize being a bunch of whiney overpaid industry brats won't get them anywhere. There won't be a season, there is a union involved.

I currently work for a company that produces routing software. Right now I wear many hats. I'm a combination network architect, field/application engineer (supporting sales) and network researcher (supporting our office of the CTO). Actually, I'm running each display with multiple desktops as well. If you look in the upper left corner of each display, you'll see that I break up each display into two virtual desktops with each of those desktops broken down into four virtual panes. This allows me to better organise what should go where. My window manager allows me to actually define and classify application windows and assign them to specific displays, desktops and panes. Of course, if need be I can still move stuff around either using the window handles or by dragging their virtual represntation around in the pagers.

Ahh nice

Madman, Multi window can get confusing. The only time I get messed personally is when my laptop is on the wrong side of the extended window...makes for some odd mouse movement. You get used to it though.

Sometimes it does. That's when I know I should step away from the keyboard and go for a bikeride.

I already have the framebuffers to support a third and fourth monitor. The problem is that I have run out of physical desktop real estate.

One of these days though, I want to create a setup that mimics the one in the movie Brazil, complete with the fresnel lens and all...
