Dual-wielding in Skyrim is... interesting. You can swing both hands individually (but not at the same time), or swing both hands together in a dual-attack.
The dual-attack can't be used while moving, but otherwise seems the premier way to deal damage with two weapons.
Then there's the dual power attack, which just completely wrecks #@$* up, but this requires stamina, so its not always an option.
Am I missing something here? Is there ever any reason where I wouldn't want to use the dual-strike? Is there some bonus to the regular swings when dual-wielding?
