Do you want the two notebooks to be totally independent of each
other? Or would you prefer output from one to be easily seen by
the other?

If you have separate kernels, you have two separate Global
contexts, one for each notebook. So, there isn't any simple way
for one notebook to "talk" to the other'

Are the two kernels running on the same machine? And if both are
running on the same machine, does that machine have a single CPU
with a single core?

Answers to your questions depend on these factors and perhaps
others I haven't thought of.
