    Does 13.04 have support for 3 or more monitors?

    I read that 13.04 has plug and play support for 3 monitors from someone
    who tried the beta. Can anyone confirm this?

    It depends if your hardware supports 3, my intel GPU only supports 2
    3 with the same resolution works best with nvidia

    I'm planning to use 2 nvidia cards to get a total of 4 monitors
    with Unity.

    Prior to 13.04 this was not a plug and play operation like it is
    with windows.

    AFAIK it depends what hardware you own. Some (all?) newer AMD cards if i am not mistaken support 3 (maybe more) monitors under Linux.

    About running 2 Nvidia cards and to have 4 monitors attached to them i don't know test and you will see if it works but probably there will be issues.

    Basically im trying to understand why a setup like that ^^^ that has
    been available for years is not plug and play on Ubuntu yet.
