I was watching this episode of the computer chronicles when at 3:37 I see the Workspace manager and at 3:43 we see some more NeXT hardware in a multi-monitor setup (and through the clip we see even more black hardware).
You can also see what appears to be a Newton and two of the projection screens are running 4DWM (AKA, Irix, which means that there are SGIs nearby).

Cool, huh? Wink

Can you install more than one dimension board in a cube in order to get a third display?

Yes. I have one cube that has 2 Dimension boards in it, so you have a total of 2 screens (1 BW, 2 colour). The nifty thing is that you can drag a playing video across the displays with no problem. Try that with Vista!
