Controlling multiple systems simultaneously with Synergy
Synergy offers an interesting approach to centrally managing multiple computers without investing in additional hardware. In contrast to legacy solutions, every machine keeps its own display. The program is definitely a boon for anybody who needs to run several machines, and Synergy's cross-operating system clipboard support is really useful feature that removes the need to copy text files. But if I had three wishes, one of them would be easier configuration on Linux.
