How can it detect that? My cousin has an Acer Aspire one with an 8.9" screen and a VGA output. And as I type this, he's in the same room as a 32" Vizio monitor with a VGA input. Would Windows shut down if he tried to run a cable from one to the other?

Hmmmm (1)

Isn't Microsoft's software crippled enough without them deliberately limiting it's abilities? I don't understand why they would put hard limits on anything. Perhaps a warning or something but it seems silly for someone to knowingly by a crippled product.
