Slinging windows with WinSplit Revolution

Thanks to my new employer, I’m now happily a member of the three monitor club (better late than never).

Three monitors are good, but three monitors plus WinSplit Revolution is freakin’ awesome.

Snapping windows from monitor to monitor and resizing them from quadrant to quadrant with a quick keystroke actually makes me feel like this guy on a daily basis (minus…or at least with fewer…of the crazies).

Even the cheapest monitors are 22 inches these days, which means a lot of wasted space for most apps. With WinSplit you can quickly Ctl+Alt+ NumberPad your way any number of really efficient and hence more productive configurations.

I find myself moving windows pretty fluidly around based on my activities and the types of apps that I have open (some demand more real-estate than others), but here’s an example of what one of my monitors often looks like.

By the way, for those of you that are still monitor-challenged, I was able to do it for less than $250 (22” monitor plus USB powered video card since one of my monitors is a 17” laptop screen).

My former employer stubbornly resisted my best nagging efforts, but now I kick myself for not having just spent my own money to make myself more productive (and happier) at work.

    Aw, this was a really great post. In theory I’d like to write like this also – taking time and real effort to make a good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and never seem to get something done.

    The beauty of these blogging engines and CMS platforms is the lack of limitations and ease of manipulation that allows developers to implement rich content and ‘skin’ the site in such a way that with very little effort one would never notice what it is making the site tick all without limiting content and effectiveness.
