Windows, just another dumb terminal?

The more I use ssh + screen, the more I realize Windows is an excellent dumb terminal mainly due to its support of awkward monitor setup support. This is four monitors, 1280, 1920 in portrait, 1920 in portrait, 1920 in landscape.

Update: Note that Windows' 7 WinKey-Arrow and WinKey-Shift-Arrow shortcut makes it even better as a dumb terminal.
