I've heard that using two monitors (or a laptop's screen and a monitor) is actually quite useful, and am thinking about trying it (which would mean figuring out how to set it up under Xorg, how to disable it when the extra monitor is disconnected, etc.).

So, what do people think (preferably those people who use or have used such a setup, but other opinions are welcome as well)?

It can be useful. Main screen contains the work that you're doing, second screen contains the result of the work...you have a quick visual of any changes without having to flip between or tile windows.

Also, if your work takes up a lot of real estate, spreading the desktop between 2 (or more) monitors can help there as well.

Apparently some games are twin screen aware as well, which could be fun.
