Apparently, the trend in business is to have 2 or 3 different monitors on a desk, rather than flipping between overlapping windows on one desktop. I can see how this might be useful given that everything is done directly on the computer now - creating an assignment for this class involves flipping between blogs, VISTA, a search window and word processing. I can see how efficiency could increase if one had separate screens.
