I'm pretty certain that you can't run two instances at the same time on 2 different monitors. If you can, I haven't seen it.


A friend of mine just told me about this. He just saw it on a local computer shop.


if you want to run 2 instances of windows on same pc, then I believe one of them has to be a vm image running alongside, with the vm running in fullscreen mode on one of the 2 monitors connected, as I usually do this at home, with one monitor connected to VGA, and one connected to DVI ports, and running a vmware image of ubuntu in fullscreen mode on my second monitor, while keeping my windows on the first monitor... In vm you can then use the same keyboard and mouse connected to the desktop for interactions
