It's great. I drag my application over to the 2nd monitor window while I debug in my primary window. It beats flipping back and forth through windows to find the right one. NIIIIICE.
Yeah, I agree. More screen real estate is always better, I've found.
Another take on this scenario - I do both web and desktop application development. For some projects, there are requirements like "web app must be optimized for 1024x768 resolution". It's great to be able to set my laptop screen to 1600x1200, and my secondary monitor to 1024x768 - I don't lose screen size for development/debugging, but I can test at the required resolution.
