Oh, you mean like having dialog boxes straddle the two monitors
on Windows?  We've got Windows software released this millenium that
still gets this wrong.  [Yeah, I know that the same problem existed
with Xinerama and many -- but not all -- X window managers until
recently.]  But I've been running with two *independent* (non-Xinerama)
screens for a decade. Each screen has numerous virtual pages that are
independently switchable.  We are able to see M*N combinations of virtual
pages side-by-side, where M and N around here are anywhere from 4-32.
This is invaluable to someone who has to run multiple trading systems,
program, read mail, browse the web, etc.  Tell me again how that works
on Windows?  ;-p
