|Hardware multiplexing in software for fun and profit.

Synergy is a really fun thing I found a few days ago. It allows an arbitrary number of computers to share the same mouse and keyboard, assuming that the computers all run either Windows, Linux/UNIX, or OS X. It even allows you to copy/paste text between the different machines. |
Earlier today, I tested it out on a Linux and Windows machine sitting next to each other in Wachman Hall. Maybe I was more amused than other people would since I've never used a KVM switch and I've never had a duel-head machine. Still, it seems useful. I hate having to switch keyboards and mice when working on two computers sitting next to each other.
