Wow!  X.org works better than I have ever seen -- the Xfce "Displays" 
dialog gives me 4 choices:


1.  Laptop -- defaults to 1280x800.

2.  Mirror Displays -- defaults to 1024x768 on both.

3.  Extend to the right -- laptop is 1280x800 and monitor is 1920x1080.

4.  ViewSonic 22" -- defaults to 1920x1080.


When I bought the laptop with Windows XP 10 years ago, the choices were 
#1, #2, and a version of #4 limited to 1024x768.  #3 wasn't even available.
