Actually his comment is a sound one. Adding more than a second display for the sake of productivity becomes a example of diminishing returns, as the more monitors you have the longer it takes to scan through all of them, unless you know exactly what you want and where it is on the full display. Also, the larger the total amount of display space you have can become stressful to your eyes. Two to three displays tends to be the sweet spot depending on the person, and anymore really becomes more overwhelming than helpful. Again, this ultimately depends on the person.nazartp said:
Mr. Meyer definitely never tried to write HIMSELF a memo referencing several sources. He's just trying to publish a paper.
I've been using 3 screens for a while now, although I had to hack off some pins from my second video card to get it fit in a PCIe X1 slot, and I have found it extremely helpful, especially with software like Photoshop, even though my secondary monitors are pretty small. I just need to scavenge around for a fourth screen, so I can use my last video output.
