Context: Ubuntu 11.10, Unity
Let's say I have a screen at resolution 1000x500.
What I'd like to do is split the screen down the middle so [Unity or X or ?] acts as if there are two displays (each of 500x500).
- Unity will display a different toolbar (the top one) on each side of the display.
- If I maximize a window on the left side of the screen, it will fill the left side only.
- If I maximize on the right, it will fill the right.
- If I hit "fullscreen" in youtube (flash) or Chrome or Movie Player, it will only fill the side of the display that it's on.
