nView question
I was just wondering if nView is available for linux. I doubt it is since I havn't heard of it. If it's not does anyone know if it will be?

nView is in fact Twinview 2.0. Improvements include things like support for higher resolutions. Nvidia chose to use a different name for marketing reasons.

Twinview is supported on Linux using the nvidia drivers. Because nview == twinview, nview works too. Using the same settings you have to use to setup Twinview.

But do I have the same features of nView in linux that I would in windows. Because the "old" twinview was very simple, nView is "much" more advanced.

What a little marketing all can do. Nview isn't that much more advanced than twinview. The limitation of twinview was that the second head supported only 1280x1024 and not higher. With nview those problems are fixed the second ramdac runs at the same speed as the first ramdac. (350 MHz)

Next to this there are no hardware changes. Perhaps nvidia made some software changed on Windows to let people think it is something new.
