Synergy, I wub you.

Synergy is an amazing little utility that allows you to share your mouse and keyboard (and to a lesser degree your clipboard) from machine to machine, independent of OS. So, for instance, at work I have a Linux desktop and a windows (with virtual machines) laptop. Google provides a handy dock and such, so when I get to my desk, I pop her in the dock and run the synergy client. Then the keyboard and mouse on my desk simply move from one screen to another as if they are made of sparkley magic. All hail synergy, the best little utility ever.

I surely hope Synergy isn't cheating on me with you!

Must try! Do you mean this synergy?

Indeed! Now that I'm used to it, I can't live without it.

O-yes the wub I have for Synergy is immense and of course, I should pay homage to the g-juggernaut who turned me on to it a few years ago. Thanks!

Agreed! I too have been a Synergy addict for quite sometime now. As far as I'm concerned, reference to this program is the only acceptable use of the word in the business world these days.
