Here is the real reason why Nvidia crippled the Linux driver : it's a bad marketing decision, limiting a functional and useful feature just to force the user to buy their new GPU :
https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/579449/linux/basemosaic-v295-vs-v310-vs-v325-only-up-to-three-screens-/post/3965459/#3965459

"In the 295 driver, we supported more than 3 basemosaic displays on GeForce cards. Marketing specifications differentiate products. NVIDIA changed the basemosaic marketing specification to differentiate GeForce and Quadro cards. The supported limit on GeForce cards is now 3 displays. Quadro cards support more than 3 displays."

Not new: AMD, Creative... already did same things, which is irrespect behavior towards customers.

The reasoning isn't contradictory IT'S A LIE! i posted in that thread because i was facing the same issue as the OP, and I can tell you for a fact that windows supports 4 monitors across 2 gtx 560s because that's exactly how my desktop is set up. meaning that the NVidia rep was just making stuff up and was hhoping no one would notice.
