Mission Control was what the guys at work called the 4-monitor Linux box
I set up. I had put 2 and 3 monitors on one box before, just wanted to
see if it could be done. It was actually pretty useful for running
DiskSuite (remotely) with two monitors for the main window ("canvas" on
one and metadevices on another), one monitor for the "disk view" and one
for a telnet session...

At home the 4 visible monitors are all on different machines. ;)
