Just buy a decent mac and have the 4 screen split on one screen. Maybe a set of perfect bound books will help.

There are many tests required at various levels of the software and hardware ecosystem to provide a coherent and smooth computing experience. Yet another awesome post! Informative as usual, I will be back again to see what else you’ve got going on that’s new! colonial

Actually M$ did do  something like this for xp and it might still be around.

It's called Deskman Powertoy but Depot is way better.

Actually M$ did do  something like this for xp and it might still be around. Stardock's Virtual Desktops is still around, still works well on W7 (32bit)  and still has no peer even in 'nix imo. I understand Winstep author Jorge Coelho is looking into including this into workshelf as well ( poke prod ! nudge nudge)

Not affiliated blahblah.

Not as good as KDE/Gnome or even some other Linux environments, but better than nothing. Also it'd be nice to see Windows multiseats. (MultiPoint server has no hardware acceleration; Linux has full 3D acceleration in a multiseat configuration.)

This reminds me of the old CDE desktops when we ran Solaris 8. Good looking app, will have to try it out!

+1 for Dexpot. I've been using it now for a couple of weeks and I love it. This is something Microsoft should look into building natively, it's extremely useful.
