Share a single mouse and keyboard between multiple computers with different operating systems, each with its own display, without special hardware.

This software has been around since 2005, it’s a tragedy that I have known of it only now, but in case you haven’t, have a go at it, by all means.

Synergy 2 is truly the best of things. It’s free, open source, and is operating system agnostic. Which is to say that you can switch your keyboard and mouse across a Mac and a PC, or use your MAC’s keyboard and mouse to type on your PC, and then flip back to the MAC in a quick flash.

Netbooks, laptops, desktop PCs,. Sometimes, people have one of each. It’s best when all of these are working in sync, if you’ve got them all on your workdesk. If you ever wanted a wireless keyboard and had a laptop, this thing saves you the trouble of getting one.

In my case, I have a 12″ netbook with an amazing keyboard, and when I want to do something on my desktop PC, like change the song on the playlist, or write this blog post while eased out and reclined on my couch, I can do that, thanks to Synergy.
