    Thumbs up Dual display front end

    Picked up a Samsung U70 USB screen in Akihabara couple of weeks ago.

    Media Engine has been working nicely for me with a Spacenavigator map but will only support one display.

    Anyone know what front end might support dual displays?

    ^ What he said.

    Centrafuse 2 does have dual screen support, but Centrafuse 3 will have even better support, supporting not only dual displays, but also the ability for the second screen to have its own dedicated controls, and dual zone sound.

    Flux (creators of CF) are really trying to appeal to people with multi screen setups. Even with the limited control CF2 has with dual zone, Im really quite happy with it. I'm already updating my car for CF3, so all users can have the choice of headphones or main speakers.

    nGhost2 supports multi-zone. I'm currently working on a multi-touchscreen setup in Linux. Linux will soon (in the next version of ubuntu) support multiple pointers which will be a major cool thing for Linux.

    I'm not sure how mutli-touchscreens works in windows, but if you have to share the same pointer with the other touchscreen, that kinda sucks. Maybe someone can enlighten me if that's the case on XP.

    As far as I know that's the case. Windows usually adds the second screen as a mirror of the first or an extension of the desktop. so your desktop stretched accross to screens.
    Same mouse pointer..

    In a multi touch setup though you don't really notice. I tested with 3 touch screens on my system with 4 more on the way and the mouse jumps instantly from screen to screen. The chances of everyone trying to do something different is so slim.

    Even with simultaneous dragging?

    But thats the thing, the chance of everyone trying to drag something at the same time is so slim, don't you think? If it were an issue MS would have addressed that issue.
