Re: How Many Monitors?
Personally, I highly doubt there will ever be tri-monitor support. Triple monitor support...I've personally never heard of it. Lots of graphics cards have triple outputs (most regular desktop cards have 2 VGA/DVI and one S-Video/Component, but only support two monitors [any combination of monitors or TV's] at a time). My laptop has an LCD, an HDMI, a VGA, and an S-Video/Component/TV output, but I'm pretty sure it can only do two monitors at a time. I think this is a hardware limitation, as many cards end up installing two drivers (for example, ATI Radeon X1600Pro/ATi Radeon X1600Pro (Secondary)).
To finish off, what makes me believe it is hardware, when I do "lspci" in Linux, it shows up as two PCI devices, at least for my Radeon.
