Not very exciting stuff I'm afraid:

100kb file limit sucks too! I paid my FIVE POUNDS!

Simple, yet strangely effective (for me, anyway...)

omg what kind of cool monitor have u got?
I have dual-head card and two monitors, one 19" and one 15" put together; it's very useful. Took me an age to get Linux to co-operate with it though!

I like the gimp in the background. I couldn't tell what GUI you're running, is it Gnome or KDE?
I'm using Fluxbox as my window manager.

How is it useful, or is it just the extra space that's useful?

Yeah and it's very useful! I can have a document on one monitor and what I'm working on on the other. Don't have to keep flipping between the windows.

I need a dual monitor setup, its a nightmare doing any kind of multimedia authoring with one crappy 17" monitor. You're constantly having to windows just to save space.

I had two set up in windows before, its very handy for web design. It was handy for MSN aswell, you can have your message windows on one screen and do your other stuff on the other.

Have you got one monitor on top of the other?

Impressive, if you can manage it. Personally the effort and technicalities (not to mention the costs) aren't appealing.

Monitors are dirt cheap you can get good second hand pure flat CRT 17" monitors for £50 each.

You either need a dual video card or two seperate ones. People tend to use a crappy cheap £5 thing for the second video card.

No you can setup it up from windows in the display settings properities, you need two graphics card for the option to be displayed.
