Windows Rage

Windows XP SP2 multiple monitor support is ruined by one egregious bug. Anyone using multiple monitors, one of them being a laptop, and extending the desktop onto the second monitor knows what I am talking about.

How can it be OK for all my icons to get scrunched together from the laptop display to the secondary display? How can this feature, its got to be one of the most common scenarios, make it out of QA without getting fixed? This is attention to detail stuff guys, it shouldn’t make it 4 years before this gets patched.

I feel Windows Rage. It’s when I encounter something so bone-headed in Windows I just want to stick a pencil in my LCD.
