Not directly. What that means is any time I tried to run 3d stuff it slowed
to a crawl because it was all in software. But the regular applications
didn't cause any slowing down. I ran with and without xinerama support and
didn't notice a difference either way. I do some electronic design work with
the schematic open on one screen and the circuit board on the other which
worked absolutely great.
One thing I've noticed on KDesktop with dual heads is whichever screen my
mouse pointer is currently residing in is the screen on which new windows
open up. It's nice to have that little bit of control.
