Michael Csikos: My tone may have seemed a bit off. I'm just like that. Have you tried virtual workspaces? I don't know how it is on windows, I'm a linux guy. In the land of X, virtual workspaces have been around since "the beginning," when smart people realized they needed "multiple monitors" but the things were so darned expensive and heavy that it just was not practical to do so. Some things have changed, some things have not. I'm certainly not going to buy 8 monitors, and that's how many "spaces" I need. So what would I do with 2 monitors? 1,2,3,4 are on monitor 1 and 5,6,7,8 are on monitor 2? Maybe. It could work. Maybe this isn't absurd :)

This is absurd. I only need 1 physical monitor and 8 to 10 virtual desktops. I can't read 3 or even 2 monitors simultaneously, so hitting ctl-f1, ctl-f2, etc. to switch between different "screens" is perfect. I don't even have to turn my head. I'll also argue that you are less productive because you're trying to focus on more than one thing at a time.
