How big is big enough?


As I get back into development I am struck by a simple truth – two monitors makes you a much more productive developer than one. On the basis of that I have unhooked my monitor from my games machine and stuck it in the back of my notebook (which is spec’d well enough to be a decent dev machine).

But – then I accidentally came across this http://www.maxivista.com/. It allows giant desktops to be created over wireless or wired. The slight wart – if you have a primary machine running Vista you need to use a legacy display driver which is a no go for me… nevertheless, very cool!

In their own words:

The MaxiVista Pro Edition can even link up to four PCs to create a giant desktop space of up to 7,680×1,600 pixels:

  1. Personal opinion, but three is the number I tend to think is optimal in most scenarios. You’ve got a Center monitor for primary work, and one to either side for anciallary information, but you are never looking to far off the center. I’ve got only two on my desk right now, and I feel like I’m missing a limb. 🙂
