    have seperate desktop backgrounds on each monitor (2 or more)....??? I
    have no problem doing this with XP.

  6. Windows has never natively supported this feature, though some add-on
    software might make it possible. Try a Google or Bing search.

  7. DisplayFusion will get you different backgrounds and is free

    Ultramon will get you different backgrounds and much more

    Trivial with Linux - out of the box.

    Google virtual desktop and you'll see any given number of OS, Freeware,
    Shareware utilities to accomplish the task

  13. Just think. IF he ran that crappy Linux on his box then he would be
    sitting there and nothing would work because his Windows based programs
    won't run on Linux. So your advice is fucked up.

    Remember Ubuntu has been FREE for years yet is is on less than one
    percent of the desktops out there. Imagine, a FREE product that NOBODY
    wants. That should tell you all you need to know about that pile of crap.

    Just FYI.

    Gotta love how the Lunix fanboys come to Vista groups to suggest replacing
    the OS as a solution to any problem.
