    I wish I had three screens. Two just isn't enough anymore.

    They enjoyed flight simulators? Although, I have 3 at the moment, and sometimes I wish I had 4...

    Thats one theory (not mine )...


    Actually I use a Ubuntu desktop so I have 4 virtual screens with 2 physical screens on each virtual screen. So I effectively have 8 screens in total. Does that mean I have a superiority complex? possibly!

    I have two, but 2 screens are also lying spare and I would love to get my hands on a card that would boost my output to 4....
