Windows "Microsoft has greatly improved its Windows 8 multiple monitor support in the Consumer Preview version of the operating system, but the company has fine tuned this even more with the upcoming Release Preview. Mark Yalovsky, a member of Microsoft's User Experience team, has taken to the company's Building Windows 8 blog to detail a number of important improvements in the Release Preview, including improved mouse targeting on shared edges and the ability to launch Metro apps on any monitor. Although the post in question has been mysteriously removed by Microsoft, we managed to secure the details thanks to a Google cached version." Very welcome.

So, they're trying to move from deprecated "virtual" desktops in a single screen to "true" desktopts in multiple screens!

How clever! So, no one can say anything against one-app-per-screen as you have to buy some others to achieve the same (current) status of any good OS.
