Xorg 7.3's hot-plugging support is finally here and it *works*. I can still remember the battling I used to do with Xinerama (with frequent lockups) back in the days of XFree86 3.x/4.x.
Now with the laptop's VGA port connected to my LCD panel, its just one command away. I wish I had more Video RAM though to support higher resolutions though. 😀

I am not sure if its an enlightenment e17 window manager, but the window handling is amazing too. I can start a movie on the LCD screen and continue to switch desktops without affecting my work area.
