What would a perfect world look like where your using Visual Studio with two or three (or more) monitors? One of the new Visual Studio 10 (Visual Studio 2008 = VS9) I'd like to nail is darn good multi monitor support, but I've got a lot more investigation to do to know what this would really look like.
Some of my favorite techie/VS bloggers are huge multi-monitor fans, like Scott Hanselman and Jeff Atwood. I just got off the phone w/ Jeff and he mentioned a some good points (here are just a few). Thanks Jeff
Some of the ideas we (our VS designers, myself, and architects) are thinking about are:
Personally, I haven't been bit the multi-monitor bug yet. I love having one PC for everything (my laptop) which I dock and use a single external monitor. I'm a big Alt-Tab & Win-M fan and like viewing simplicity, seeing just what I'm focusing on in view. So my first task is to start trying a multi-monitor setup myself.
The reason for this post is to collect your feedback. Now, early in the product cycle, before our plans are baked. What would make Visual Studio rock on multiple monitors?
