Synergy: sharing Keyboard/Video/Mouse across different machines.

Synergy is a neat piece of software that lets you share a single keyboard/video/mouse across your machines. It basically acts like having TwinView or Xinerma, but on different systems. Can you do it across your Sun Solaris machine and your Windows box? Sure!

You can arrange the monitors in patters like square, vertical, horizontal, whatever.

So if you have two or more desktops, and want that Xinerma feel, or just to get rid of two (or more) keyboards on your desk, look at Synergy, it's a pretty amazing piece of software. Beats having to VNC manually into your other Desktop :-).
