The latter, really.  It started as a dual-head PC and the nearby third 
monitor on an Indy got a KVM switch.  Then a while ago I snagged a 2-up 
2-across stand and happened to have 4 matching Iiyamas that had cost me 
nothing, so...  It's grown organically and a lot cheaper than buying one 
really large hi-res display.  The two graphics cards can actually drive 
three monitors each but that really would be OTT, and besides then I'd 
probably have to actually /buy/ something.

It's useful when photo editing or doing anything "interesting" on the 
network that needs a lot of windows.  The KVM is still there so 
sometimes the top right is displaying the Indy desktop.
