I think what's probably more useful, to someone trying to work out what
to do, is hearing about the various problems.  Some they won't have
heard of before.  Then they can weigh up which sound best or worst.

With dual monitors two problems I've found were:  If something has to
span both monitors, it doesn't do it well if they're different
dimensions.  And the desktop, itself, doesn't always handle two screens
of different dimensions, too well.  Though, you might have to set things
up, that way, that if your graphics card isn't good enough to handle
driving two monitors at full resolution, simultaneously.
