Not according to NVidia but maybe they're being lazy.

Q: Are there Control Panel features that were available under Windows XP that are no longer available on Windows Vista?
A. There are some Windows XP features that will no longer be available on Windows Vista due to changes in the core operating system. These features are:

* Horizontal and Vertical desktop span multi-monitor modes (note: Dual View and Clone mode display options are still available)
* NVKeystone display correction
* Full screen video mirror
* Video zoom

"Will span be back in 7?"

Have you tried the Windows7 beta? Should be easy to find out.

I have the iso (using in Virtualbox) but cant burn it and it would mean swapping a drive, but still thats a beta so I wouldn't go by that anyway.

Whats Microsoft's official word on the matter if any?

None, it's a beta still.

If your system runs Windows Vista just fine, Windows 7 will run about the same. From what I've experienced with the beta, your mileage may vary. Look Windows 7 is great but I gotta see the prices before I plop another $250 or more for an OS that gives me no new advantages. The fast loading is true, on a machine that couldn't handle Vista but again from personal tests I see no increase in Windows 7 running on a machine that far exceeds the recommended Vista specs. Again you may experience a difference.

What new advantages did Vista give you when you adopted it? DX10 perhaps in it's limited support?

XD, uhmm, re read it. dual view (ie, multi monitor) is still available.

What vista dosnt do is allow you to make one desktop out of 2 screens. they need to be 2 different desktops.

The last 2 were easily done when the display was 2d so its understandable they got jacked when it went to 3d.
