      Duet Display vs Air Display opinions
      Almost everyone thinks Duet Display is a great alternative to Air Display.
      i bought it and then i found out that it does not work with the cdu of flightsimulator, the touchscreen function does not work then. I asked the developer and they admit that and told me that they are still working on a solution but that coult take a long time. The problem seems to be Nvidia.

      ZoneScreen is able to mirror local desktop to another computer in the network. The main difference is that it also allows extend desktop, not only mirror it. Also, you could use ZoneScreen for Windows Mobile to extend/mirror your desktop to screen of your handheld.

      Discontinued

      Main web reads "[...] new feature to be implemented, it is very unlikely for new versions to appear in the nearest future[...] I haven't done any changes to ZoneScreen in years."
