Dual Monitorage

Don’t know if that is a word, but frankly don’t care :)

I went CRT-free 5.5 years ago, and went dualie 4.5 years ago. Best idea ever – my eyes thank me, and having two screens is great for segmenting work.

I just ran into Ultramon, and I can’t believe I wasn’t using this app.

Beyond the various features it does have, each screen has its own taskbar (this is Windows only). It already feels much better :)

I’ve been using UltraMon for about 6-7 months now – great little piece of software.

Having recently bought a second monitor, 24” Samsung, and having tried Ultramon, I must admit that it’s better to let nVidia drivers do the work. Ultramon was causing slowdowns. Perhaps it’s specific to my system (the screens aren’t identical, the other is a 19”), but it’s just my 5 cents.

Hrmm interesting – mine is a 21.3″ + 19″ (1600×1200 and 1280×1024) and I haven’t had a problem with slowdowns.

Oh welp.

Awesome program. Compliments my 22″ (1680×1050) and 19″ (1280×1024) setup nicely.
