    hahaha I lol’d hard.

    At first I was like what, it just looks like metro… but then I realized what was going on lol

    Mine is worse than that. I have a smaller secondary monitor that’s basically just a big webcam stand. It literally stays off all the time (unless I need a little more room to spread stuff out, but it’s a 15″ 4:3 so there isn’t much extra room compared to my 22″ 16:10) with my webcam sitting on it.

    I have a 22″ and 19″. The 19″ is generally just used for my music window or update window. Virtual sticky notes would be a good idea…hmm.

    I have 3 monitors, one with my main work, 2nd with the reference text and the third with email/tasks or a remote desktop. Who new you could run 3 off a laptop.
