I use two monitors with twinview and it supports it just fine as far as I
can see - I can even choose between one big cube, or 2 seperate cubes.  I
actually can see how this will speed up my workflow...spatially it feels
better than virtual desktops, and visually you can check to see which
program is running on which viewport.  Good to see others are having good
success with it...I will continue to test it and see how it goes during more
intense recording sessions.
