Post Multiple monitors
I thought I'd share my current setup. I run Ubuntu Mate 19.04 with three monitors on an HP desktop with 8 Gb of RAM. My left monitor has my internet connection, the middle monitor runs the main TW program, and the right monitor has floating TW windows.

I run two of the monitors from my display card (as VGA and DPMI). I use a Diamond USB 3.0 to HDMI/DVI Multi-Display adapter connected to a USB 3.1 to drive my third monitor.

This setup has really expanded my work pattern. The Diamond adapter has a little bit of problem running on Ubuntu 19.04 (which I can resolve by dropping back to version 18.10 if I want, but it has not affected me that much). You can run a similar setup on Windows if you want.

If you're looking for a way to increase productivity, this method (for me) is awesome!

I run something similar, on three monitors as well. Left monitor Tw main, middle with floating, right with floating and internet plus a webpage I reference often for translating. Good stuff
