    I run Microsoft OneNote side by side with some mac Apps and often find my self switching between the apps using Leopard spaces on my MBA which is annoying. I want to be able set an external LCD and assign that solely to OneNote, and simultaneously be able to access my OSX apps on my MBA's LCD. So each OS platform has its own window... any ideas on how to get this done?

    Connect an external display?

    Or use Spaces.

    I do a similar thing using VMWare Fusion, but with Visual Studio. If you plug in an external monitor, and you switch Fusion to full screen it will only occupy the screen it's located on, leaving the other one untouched. Effectively, you then have Windows on one monitor and OSX on the other one.

    Make sure that if you want to try the dual monitor setup with fusion that you have the latest 2.0 beta, as this is the first fusion that is supporting dual monitors in fusion.
