I won't consider a UI "fully" customizable unless I can use it on a
multiple monitor system.

All of my computers except the laptops (and even them when I'm using
them at a desk) have multiple monitors.  It sure would be nice to
use that screen real estate when I play games.  The closest I can
come is to play the game in non-full-screen mode (in those games
that allow it) so that it doesn't blank out the second monitor, and
it for web surfing, watching for email, and out-of-game IM systems.
