So what kind of non-standard SW is there for managing multiple  
monitors (Mac OR PC.)  I've tried them a couple of times and find it  
really obnoxious to have "the desktop" extended across monitors that  
have different sizes and aren't actually next to each other (and "not  
good" even when they are "tiled.")  What I'd like is some utility that  
would allow me to throw up certain pages (windows of running apps, I  
guess) onto the second monitor where it would stay, untouchable, till  
I do something else special to get rid of it.   Meanwhile, the "main"  
monitor would get all the normal behavior, all the menus, and all the  
mouse pointers...

But I've never had enough motivation to try to track down third party  
multi-monitor apps that might be useful.  Does anyone have suggestions?
