Bill Gates Describes His Three-Monitor Computer Setup

Ever wonder what Bill Gates's desk looks like? How he sets up his PC to get things done?

Well, you need wonder no longer, friend. The man himself has decided to share in a blog post, at Inside Office Online, exactly what his desktop looks like.

Gates uses three monitors, side by side, to create a seamless ultra-wide desktop for maximum productivity. He divides his actions up by monitor. The left one contains Outlook, which pulls in not only his e-mail, but his IMs, faxes, and voicemail. He does the more intensive work on the middle monitor, it seems, making it the place for his open Word docs and spreadsheets. Meanwhile, the right monitor is reserved for his Web browser and for viewing e-mail attachments that people might send him.

The rest of his post sadly reads like Microsoft ad copy, with Gates advocating the benefits of more fringe products like 'SharePoint' and 'LiveMeeting.' We're also disappointed that there are no photos or screen shots of his setup. We bet it's because Gates wants to hide that even he opts for Firefox or Chrome over IE.
