I do seem to be forced to a 2D setup with dual monitors. RAM wise I have 8G,
with 1G on each of my two graphics cards. I suspect the main issue may be that
they are AMD/ATI Radeon cards. Ubuntu 11.10 wouldn't even install with them as
I could get no GUI to configure through, I haven't tried a 12.04 live CD yet,
although I am running 12.04 now having installed 11.10 and upgraded a few
months back (different graphics card on install, but also ATI Radeon).
