6 Thoughts on “64 bit, two video cards, four monitors, and Vista

  1. God the glare on those monitors is horrendous. Give me decent 1-2 monitors over those anyday.

  2. If Microsoft supported Vista x64 properly (take the lack of Print to OneNote and Groove folder sharing for example, then this would pretty much be my desktop, but I’m running x86 Vista Ultimate. :)

  3. w00t! Go 64b! My x64 workstations run everything I want them to just fine.

  4. “And before you comment…. I hate the mouse he has as well… yuck!”

    And yet you forgot to mention the coffee cup… Shame.

    Awesome – now all you need it Ultramon to manage these suckers better than the built in tools.

    Different backgrounds per monitor
    One click movement of windows to different monitors
    and much more.

    Very cool utility.

    Hate the mouse? Well.. the Logitech Marble FX would be a little better, but they both avoid the subtle pain you all suffer from the unnatural rotation of your radius and ulnar that you work with every day. You’ll notice it more and more now. :)
