Separate wallpapers for dual monitors in vista

You know, I really thought they'd have this feature built into Vista. It just seems like one of those nifty GUI things they need to keep up with Mac...

Here's where DisplayFusion comes in. The basic version is free and will allow you to choose a different wallpaper image for each monitor. The app is pretty small (currently consuming 796K in RAM) and is really easy to use. Once installed, just launch it and it'll show up as an icon in the taskbar tray.

Go into the settings and then choose a monitor, then a background color (if needed) and the image you want to display on that monitor. Repeat for second monitor.
