Microsoft MSDN Blogger Recommends “Synergy” – A Poor Man’s KVM switch for Windows 7

MSDN Blogger, Willy-Peter Schaub, was blown away with the program "Synergy" being used by Brian Keller in a meeting at Redmond.
Synergy lets you easily share a single mouse and keyboard between multiple computers with different operating systems, each with its own display, without special hardware. It’s intended for users with multiple computers on their desk since each system uses its own monitor(s).
Redirecting the mouse and keyboard is as simple as moving the mouse off the edge of your screen. Synergy also merges the clipboards of all the systems into one, allowing cut-and-paste between systems. Furthermore, it synchronizes screen savers so they all start and stop together and, if screen locking is enabled, only one screen requires a password to unlock them all.

    Actually, Multiplicity from Stardock does a much better job and is still actively being developed as opposed to synergy which has not seen an update since 2006.
