Multi-display never works on Linux

I am surprised that multi-display is still such a big issue on Linux (Xubuntu). My problem is that my two¬†monitors are running at different resolution. It can work well if I set both monitor to 1280×1024. OSX never had a problem with it. Now I have to give up Xubuntu as my main development environment. (Windows 7?)

(edit: while Xubuntu doesn’t work well, Ubuntu has no problem. on OSX, you have to remember to disconnect your external monitor before you shutdown, otherwise, OSX will not detect it next time.)
