DisplayFusion Comments

For all those looking to use this as a free solution

The free version does NOT include the taskbar on multiple screens option. Because of that, I'll be uninstalling this and installing an alternative such as ZBar.

Comment by eljusticiero67
about DisplayFusion Jun 2011

Displayfusion and Actual Window Manager are the best display-based productivity software I found. They both support the following (indicating who is the winner in each category)
Multiple taskbars (Actual Window Manager)
Multiple Wallpapers (Display Fusion)
Titlebar Buttons (AWM by a small margin)
Window snapping (DF by a small margin)
Screensavers (N/A)

I personally like DF better because it has a little bit more configurability and the wallpaper manager is a bit better. The taskbar is better in AWM but it doesn't prove to be a deal winner for me.

DisplayFusion is the first piece of software I install after repaving my PC. It is a superb alternative to UltraMon. Very highly recommended.
