Not sure if we are talking about the same thing or not.  When I said stretch
I meant the cheap cards that run the display at eg 2048xx768 and stretch it
across the two monitors. The 'start' menu then appears on the left monitor
while the 'clock' appears on the right monitor. Both monitors have to run at
the same res (as it is actually) 

I can drag stuff from one monitor to the other, but they are actually
completely separate with regards desktop area and resolution (no task bar on
the second) windows correctly maximise to the respective monitor and appear
correctly on the designated monitor, rather than centred between the two.
What a pain that is.

Take Care

I actually like this mode -- you can just drag stuff from one desktop to
another. I tried two separate desktops (horizontal and vertical) and didn't
like it as well.
