Most software is reasonably well behaved with two monitors.
The extended desktop behaves well enough with programs displaying there if
placed there and otherwise accessing the primary display.
When there is nothing else to do with the secondary display (not of course
that that ever actually happens) I like to put a random slideshow on the
secondary monitor so I can be distracted by memories of the places I have
been to while I try and work :-).
