Hey! If I didn't have a spare 21" 4:3 CRT, I wouldn't even be
able to read this! I'm a Frankenstein museum of forgotten and
reanimated computer hardware... ;-)
I have created dual-screen setups with CRTs many years ago,
with one graphics card (1st monitor DVI->VGA, 2nd monitor
VGA), and it was very convenient to work with. The only problem
with CRTs is that they're demanding workspace area and volume,
compared to LCDs.
