I am addicted to the two monitor paradigm at work, I am not sure how I could live without it now. I am wondering how one monitor was ever enough when trying to navigate through RDP and code simultaneously. I use the IBM T43 (which has a fingerprint reader that I have not used) together with the T43 Port Replicator and a Samsung Monitor, I can say that I am living the life.
My manager passed on a link to UltraMon that makes the management of two screens a snap. Here are few of the features I cannot live without:
• Window management
Quickly move windows between monitors or maximize a window to the desktop using the additional window buttons added by UltraMon.
• Smart Taskbar
UltraMon adds an additional taskbar for each secondary monitor, and each taskbar only shows tasks from the monitor it is on. This makes managing lots of open applications much easier, and when activating an application, you'll know on which monitor it will appear.
• Desktop wallpaper
The UltraMon wallpaper manager adds the ability to use a different picture on each monitor, or stretch a single picture across the desktop.
• Use more than 10 monitors
UltraMon provides a custom Display Settings applet with support for configuring more than 10 monitors. You can quickly configure even large numbers of monitors using the included monitor arrangement tools.
