They're wrong - I've been
using it with dual screens since 4.0.4 and it works perfectly (provided you
don't want to stretch one panel across both screens).
The thing is that
each screen has a separate desktop activity with its own plasma setup (I
haven't tried it with a plain i.e. non-plasma setup) but if you don't mind
this (and I don't) then I can't find any other drawbacks.
In fact, I kind
of like it like that because I can have separate backgrounds on each screen
(it just so happens that they're photos of my kids).
I use an nvidia 9400GT
with the latest binary drivers and have xinerama setup in my xorg.conf file.
I have had the same setup since 3.5.8 (previously using an FX5500).
think that performance may have been slightly better with the 195.36 drivers
than the current 265.xx drivers but I haven't yet switched back to confirm
Anyway, the point is that dual-head on nvidia on KDE4 works great.
Anyone who says it can't be done should go back and re-read the nvidia
