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.
