very cool. works nice on dual-screen with sectioned view as said and not just duplicated.

Especially nice on dual monitors, as the two cityscapes are subtly different.

Very Cool. A definite keeper. The Bloom effect is graphics intensive and makes it a bit choppy, but turn that option off and it's great. Although, I'd like to see the fly-throughs last a while longer.

Very nice looking. The defaults ran a bit sluggish on my quad Mac Pro, but turning off some options pepped it back up.
