RE: Two-Monitor advantage? (was LCD Monitors)



With many of us, the free hand is the least dexterious and controllable one;
we evidently are not as fortunate as you to be coordinated in both hands or
equally dexterious in both.  I know that I tend to favor my right hand over
my left which results in anever so slight disruption in my work flow when I
have to undertake an operation that calls for use of the other hand.  I find
that this is less true when it comes to turniong my head from one monitor to
another.

What about your other hand?  For me, one hand stays on my keyboard for
shift-tab, Ctrl-Z (undo), copy/paste, etc. while the other is free for the
mouse.
