My experience is similar. My office "dual monitor"
consistes of a laptop and one freestanding monitor,
with the laptop display as the secondary (because
it's smaller). The only practical use I've ever gotten
out of this setup has been during teleconferences,
when I log into a conference's display and put the
speaker's display on the secondary so I can use
the primary for my regular work. Otherwise, the
tendency of a dual setup to never put things in the
places I want them to be just annoys the hell out of

At home, I have a "dual monitor" setup with two
freestanding monitors that has proven to be more
usable for me. Each monitor has its own computer
attached to it. :)
