Multi-Head Displays in Linux
IntroductionMultiple head display. Macs have had it for ages, Windows users just got it, and you know you want it. Let's take a detailed look into what this desktop-enhancing technology is, and how it works in Linux.
The term "multi-head" refers to using more than one monitor side-by-side to create a very large logical desktop. For example, rather than having a single 17" monitor running at 1280x1024, it is possible to take two older 14" 800x600 monitors and place them side by side, creating a single 1600x600 display. If this sounds impractical to you then you may be right; multiple heads take up a rather large amount of space on your desktop, and they also require purchasing a second monitor and a second video card. However, for true desktop junkies, more is never enough.
Solid state disks (SSDs) made a splash in consumer technology, and now the technology has its eyes on the enterprise storage market. Download this eBook to see what SSDs can do for your infrastructure and review the pros and cons of this potentially game-changing storage technology.
