Quad-Monitor AMD/NVIDIA Linux Gaming: What You Need To Know

The multiple monitor experience on Linux traditionally was very arcane and difficult; it would involve editing text configuration errors, trial-and-error, picking the right Linux GPU driver, and various other steps to get a working multi-monitor desktop.
