Multiple displays have been standard with Mac OS since Mac OS 7. I  
had three displays on a PPC 8100 machine back in 1995. Doc is using a  
XServe machine (good if you want a rack mount system, bad if you need  
multiple video cards - only two slots) with the regular Aqua GUI. The  
maximum number of displays currently possible on a Mac Pro is eight  
(four NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT dual head cards, a build to order option  
at the Apple Store).
