Depends on how and what you program. Two screens are nice because you can have the compiler or whatever on the main screen, and a reference or sample on the second. Worth having two I'd say. More than 2 may be a bit cluttered.

I could do with 3, but I work with 2. I do have 12-16 application windows open at any one time though.

Depending on what you program, the more workspace you have, the better. A lot of programmers find themselves with a lot of applications and tools open, so it's a lot easier to have it all in view instead of allways switching between windows...

Yes, I usually have my editor and compiler on one screen and my database management programs running on the other screen.
