Turn off Virtual desktop?

AFAIK, the active border feature simply allows automatic dragging of windows
from one desktop to another. For example, if you're working in desktop one,
and you drag your window to all the way off screen to the right, it will
automatically snap into desktop two.
To disable the virtual screen setup, where you have to pan annoyingly across
your workspace, you have to edit your XF86Config file. I've forgotten
exactly what has to be done, but it involves matching the desktop settings
with your actual screen resolution.
BTW, this is another silly Linux ease-of-use issue. I don't know anyone who
works with their screen in this stupid, pan-and-scan mode, which is the
default setting. Everyone seems to change it as soon as they figure out
how. I don't see how it could be useful, except with a really big monitor
at a really high resolution (which I've tried, and it's still a pain in the
butt, and the fonts are still really, really ugly). With so many desktops
available, it's easier to spread the windows around and click between
screens, than to pile all the windows into one desktop, and then try to
reposition the screen over them. It's nice to have such a configuration
option, but by no means should it be the default setting.
