Way back in the dark ages (May of 2008), I talked about synergy, and excellent piece of software that allows you to have multiple computers controlled by one central keyboard and mouse. Each computer needs its own screen, but it’s ideal for multiple laptops or a combination of laptop and desktop.
Today I saw that there was a fork of this project, called synergy-plus. This is extremely handy, because the synergy code itself hasn’t been changed in a long time, and there are a few bugs, especially when disconnecting/reconnecting Mac laptops.
Synergy has been a life saver for me and some others at my company. If you don’t use it and you’re tired of moving your hands from keyboard to keyboard, give it a shot!
