Some time ago I wrote that I’m using just 1 screen. Recently, I stopped fighting the windmill and didn’t give/sell my second screen to anyone (after buying a better screen).
Instead… I cleaned my workroom and needed to throw some stuff away (like a bookshelf), and there was no place for the 2nd monitor to be. So, I just decided to put in on my desktop.
Few days later I decided to plug it in – give it a go.
Week later I actually used it for something other than watching background image.
In fact, now I have the screen in use, and it’s on the right side of my main monitor, which hasn’t moved an inch to any direction. (At this point I’m cursing my sucky cell phone for not having a decent camera, could have taken a picture).
Luckily, there’s Ascii to save:
Screens aren’t like this: (bit like “one very wide screen”)
__ __ x
They are *bit* like this: (like “one main monitor right in front of me, and then secondary monitor can be seen by turning head a bit”)
__ \ x
Not in such sharp angle, but anyways. Since I like to have one “main” screen (so that I don’t need to turn my head bit to the left or right when staring the main screen), I like this setting. At least somewhat.
Anyway, I’m totally hooked. Two monitors is like having 2 zombies instead of 1. Totally cool. Now just need to decide whether one of them will be a boss.
I don’t know yet which way I will eventually settle, but will be (1) hearing you (2) and most likely testing to see what’s the “best” mode for me.
(I’ve been thinking that having 3rd monitor would be even cooler, but… maybe later)
So, in case you have 2 (or more) monitors – how do you place them on your desktop?
