I just joined that camp. I don't think I could go back now. At $99 for a
monitor and most video cards supporting at least two (my video controler
should do three, but the MB doesn't have the connector) it just works.

Even weirder that some of the Linux DEs (the KDE in Kubuntu) are starting
to hide that capability by default. I do like the new gnome deal that adds
new virtual desktops as you use them... as soon as you use desktop two, it
adds three.

I think this has to do with the player application rather than DE.
libreoffice impress can use one full screen for display while using the
other for application control. Maybe that works because it is still the
same app in the second window. But it just seems to work for me.
