GNOME and Xinerama

Is Xinerama supported in GNOME? Does GNOME support maximizing of windows with Xinerama? KDE works very well as you probably know...

xinerama support is in X(free/org) and the windowmanager you use.
As you may know, you are allowed to use different windowsmanagers under Gnome and Kde.
The default Kde windowmanager (kwm) has good xinerama support,
the same goes for the default the default Gnome wm (metacity).

Other good options are:
- Sawfish
- Icewm
- Enlightenment
- fluxbox
- blackbox

For other wm's search
most modern wm handle xinerama correctly.
