Multiple monitors and productivity

There’s a post over on Slashdot on the subject of multiple monitors increasing the productivity of developers.

The post begins with this [emphasis added by me]:

An systematic study conducted by NEC-MitsubishiATI Technologies and the University of Utah has concluded that the use of multiple monitors in the workplace increases productivity.

That’s cool.

I also heard that there was a study put out by DOW and Johnson and Johnson saying that agent orange is safe to use as an infant gargle.
