Ubuntu 12.04 LTS: Like it or not, this Linux grows on you

Dual Monitor Support

has always been lousy in gnome compared to xfce and kde. Don't suppose they've given that any attention this time round have they? If not I'll stick on xfce.

Why GNOME refugees love Xfce

XFCE was better than Gnome 2 never mind 3

Well, for me anyhow.

I use a dual head set up. XFCE actually knows about both monitors, allows you to configure wallpapers separately, specify which monitor you want panels on etc, which is more than I could ever get gnome to do.

I also love XFCE's ability to show your main menu on a desktop right click. Not too useful on a small screen where windows will tend to be maximised, but when you've got lots of screen real estate I find it faster than having to find a panel launcher.
