Description

This is hrev30824.

I can't think of a reason to keep the preview monitor to the left of the Screen preference panel. Can't we lose that thing and put the workspaces count and a button to "Set Background" under the rest of the drop-down menus to the right?

It's not really useful now, but once we have multi monitor, we will need this (and a bit more stuff) again, so I don't think it makes much sense to remove it now.

I see. Considering that multimonitors are (by far, I guess) most of the time side by side, it would be better to have the preview above the options instead of to the left. If you agree, I'll invalidate this ticket and open a fresh one.

It will be worked on anyway, once the time has come. I don't think there is a need for another ticket.
