The Computer Is Your Friend: Dual Monitor Denouement  
You know, I've very quickly adapted to using a single monitor -- thanks in part to the quick-and-easy Desktop Switcher that Ubuntu has.

The whole system seems to be working much more smoothly than it has in a very long time.

After almost a full day of this, I've started to realize that all of my most blood-pressure-raising computer issues in the last few years have centered around my stubborn insistence at keeping the two-monitor set-up running.

Hell, if I recall correctly, that was what kept me from keeping that video card I got last year in the machine: it ran fine until I tried a second monitor.

My team leader at work uses two monitors. I'll never know how he does it.

Everyone in my office has or wants two monitors. Moreover, they want two of these. Which are a bitch to set up, a bitch to configure, and a bitch in practice because all of these bankers then complain that the text is too small or too blurry (optimum resolution is 1680 by 1050, which is tiny text; if they make the resolution smaller it becomes illegible).
