SynergyI came across an intriguing tool yesterday called Synergy. It's a simple tool that allows the keyboard and mouse on one computer to work across multiple physical machines. It's awesome! With my dual-screen main machine, and two laptops on either side, I'm effectively running a quad-screen system! Cool!

Synergy is open source, cross platform, and somehow or another pulls off the magic of sharing the clipboard across all the systems. Each computer is still its own machine, so no dragging windows around. But when you're like me and you can get to your data on the network, and you simply want to run a bunch of applications visibly at the same time, this is unbelievable cool!

Now I need to find Linux and Mac boxes to try this with, too!
