What would be nice is to have an option to set the scale, eg if you have a really high dpi screen so every thing isnt tiny

If you're doing that button for back, I think it'd make more sense to say "All Settings" or something. Right now it's not clear. Show all what? :)

Maybe behavior and appearance settings could be placed in a popover-menu? That would leave more white space for placement configuration.

Assuming that slider next to the "Automatic brightness" switch is how you adjust the brightness whether automatic brightness is turned on or not:

The brightness slider looks like it will go inactive when automatic brightness is turned off.

imo, those glossy displays don't match the elementary style, and would be clearer if it had some kind of screen frame in order to be more illustrative.

That blue gradient is getting a bit overused, I think. I think the displays can satisfy their purpose simply without looking repetitive.

How do they look repetitive?

the settings below the display selection might be confusing since you don't see so fast that those settings are only for the selected display :/, maybe a arrow from the bottom bg into the white?

I think it would be a bit clearer about the dragging and dropping to position the monitors, if there was no spacing between them (as it would be when all the content is stretched between them) and also I like how in GNOME the panel (so in your case wingpanel) in shown on the monitor previews :)

What if you want one display to mirror another, but not all of them? Also the headers seem a little disjointed with the other labels below them.

For the selected display an option to turn mirroring on or off, and then a drop down with the other monitors available for mirroring. When monitors are mirrored it could be displayed underneath their names that they mirror another, eg

Projector
(mirrors Laptop)

How do you select which displays to mirror? Or does the option make all screens mirror each other?

What if you want to use absolute placement of monitors e.g. when I use my laptop and a second monitor, I want to make the laptop screen about 200 pixels lower than the monitor, so that windows and my pointer stay level when I drag them across the border. Currently the NVidia XOrg settings let me do this.

Nice mockup! But I'd rather prefer seeing the option "mirror display" under the "Behavior" group. Isn't it a behavior itself?

Moreover, a little note: the behavior group, with that mixing of switchs, and slider, and combobox, seems a bit messy in my opinion.

Ugh don't remind me.

My 2nd monitor doesn't want to tell Linux that its optimal resolution is 1280 x 1024, I wasted today trying to get it to work, to no avail.

An interface that just works, has what is needed, no more and no less (well, except for multi-screen repositioning, but can be added very easily).

You should be able to reposition by dragging the displays in that white area :)

Which is exactly what I was thinking about. You, sir, are the master of minimalistic interfaces. Which, by the way, leads me to ask you something. If the application's icon has been dropped from the window, why not the application's title?

We still use window titles for window switching in the dock and I'm pretty sure that screen readers need them.

the Labels, I believe. Aligned to the left, like Windows does. I like it more when aligned to the right, like OSX and a few other Linux window managers.

I like it better aligned to the right too, its closer to the actual widgets and feels more related to it, like I can definitely say this label is for this widget and stuff.

its better at the center, example, when you see the tittle of a document, is in the center, is the best place

Yeah, but we're talking about their alignment with widgets. :)
