Multiple monitors with virtual machines via MaxiVista

I was recently made aware of a program called MaxiVista (  This program allows you to use the monitor of a network connected computer as a secondary monitor on your physical computer.  For me the really cool thing about this is that you can use this program on multiple virtual machines and end up with a virtual machine configuration that looks and behaves just like a multi-monitor computer:MaxiVista under Virtual PC

   MaxiVista under Virtual PC   MaxiVista under Virtual PC   MaxiVista under Virtual PC

In order to use the mouse correctly with this sort of configuration you will need to disable the mouse integration feature of Virtual PC / Virtual Server.  When you get this working it is really weird – but very cool 🙂
