Windows 7 with Ultramon by segosa on 05-09-2009 at 07:08 AM
Does anyone who uses dual monitors have Windows 7 (RC1) installed with Ultramon? If so, does the secondary taskbar work properly?

The guy still hasn't published an official final version for Vista... seems like he's in no rush which is a shame considering how useful this tool is.

I haven't done much with it yet, but I've been meaning to update from 7000 to 7100, I'll see what I can do.

I still don't know why Windows doesn't provide better multimon support.

This post from Softpedia expains why Microsoft haven't included multi-monitor support for the taskbar yet. It's from last year, but I'm sure Microsoft are still putting it off.

UltraMon 3.0.6 Beta is out.

This is epic, however you can't drag things like you can in the real superbar (to rearrange), regardless....this is good for now ...hopefully they will improve on this.

I was also an adamant UltraMon user until my switch to Windows 7. I discovered DisplayFusion, and love it. It's not quite as feature rich as UltraMon, but it works nicely, provides a matching taskbar on alternate monitors, and it's portable.

Sure, it was a week old when you posted it but yeah..

I wish Microsoft (the OS dev teams) would write this into Windows rather than have third party applications for it. Possibly they don't want to kill the market in this area but their other departments (Messenger for example) don't seem to have a problem integrating features that third party applications have written.
