No each screen is seperate.
Technically yes, but I think dirt rider has the ride idea. Take a standard desktop for example. On the left screen you could have all your icons on the left, however your gadgets could be on the right hand side of the right screen. You can get wallpapers which will split between the two screens. Once you move to the end of the left screen with the mouse, you will be moving on the right screen.

Games normally only play on the primary screen


If you have specialized hardware like a Matrox Triple Head adapter or running an ATI card with Eyefinity or Nvidia cards with the new Surround Gaming then it will just be playing on the primary display.

If you have a spare screen then just do it, you'll never look back.
