even more people dropped in, with additional suggestions. Here the
updated Summary, you may delete the previous one.
The most common answer was X/BigX from xsoftware, to be found at
Another Package which does the same is Quadrate from OilField
Systems, which seems to be a little bit cheaper. To be found at
In this context also PCS (http://www.pcs.co.uk/) was mentioned
twice as distributor.
And at last, there was a Free utility mentioned: xmove from the
X11R6 Distribution, but this one is in beta since '97. To be found at
Other suggestions: Reflection X (this is a PC X-Server, not what I
was looking for), and Parallax Video Cards including Drivers.
There were also several people under the impression, that I had
problems with getting a dual-headed config to run. Well I can assure
you, we have run Dual-Headed setup for years, and are still running
under Solaris 2., SunOS 4.1 using CDE and mwm/tdesktop.
But none of those allow you to move Windows from one screen to
another, the screens are separated from the application's perspective.
