I recently acquired a "larger than life" high-res monitor from my employer, which is absolutely great. I can now have multiple maps, multiple catalog views, and tables open whatsoever.
I kind of would love to have the "content" pane open on/in one view, whilst also having one open for the other view... now the content view is uniform, and changes depending on the active content-window... This is especially hard when you have multiple maps open, and want to see the connections/legend/etc. on both maps at the same time.
