Schwachfug. (Bollocks for the Anglophiles around here)

It's just a very efficient way to work, as you don't have two switch 
back and forth between hidden/overlapped windows. A two screen solution 
was even available back in the good old days of DOS, when you ran your 
application on color (xGA) screen and your debugging and source 
window(s) on an additional monchrome (Hercules/MDA) monitor. One of the 
reasons why the Borland IDEs where lightyears ahead of Microsoft and the 
other guys.

And this not only is an efficient way to program, but also for other, 
everyday work. A lot of my clients, once they have used a 2-screen setup 
would never go back to a single screen and dread when they have to work 
off a single screen laptop (or tablet) for example.
