I'm not trying to be rude, just curious. I saw in another post you said you were 16 or 17... How do you afford software like that as well as your beastly rig?

I have VS10 at work and VS11 at home, although my desktop is noticeably more powerful so it probably masks any difference between the two versions.

If you can consider yourself an independent web developer then you qualify for WebsiteSpark and can get VS for 3 years free. WPF doesn't count though, so you might have to dabble in Silverlight or ASP.NET. smile.gif

ReSharper would require an outlay of cash though. They had a 50% off sale for Personal licenses last year in September (which is when I bought my licence) so maybe they'll do something similar this year as well. If you're a student then you get it cheaper all the time.

This is why I love Linux. No hidden charges. Just install then code.

Unless you buy commercial software (like IDEs) for Linux, although more often than not it will be cross platform rather than Linux-specific.

You get multimonitor on one monitor (or "workspaces") compability with Linux, but that doesn't solve the issue since you have to use VS.

Although I believe UltraMon is able to span multiple "maximized" windows on one screen too, basically doing what you want, although on a smaller resolution.
What you really want is more resolution, not monitors. 2 1920x1080 monitors can provide either 3840x1080 (32:9, 4.14 megapixel) or 2160x1920 (5:4) resolution, or you could go for a 1440p screen (just 3.69 megapixel) put in "portrait" to ultimately gain more vertical room - which is ideal for programming, and a lot more worth than overall pixel count.

There's plenty of 3rd party tools to do the same on Windows as well
