Synergy2 desktop sharing

I just saw an article on Slashdot where someone was asking about a software KVM, or rather a software KM, i.e. they wanted to still use 2 screens.

It looks like x2x is an option, however, Synergy2 seems to be more impressive as it not only allows you to control more than just 2 native screens with a single keyboard and mouse but you can actually cut and paste between screens also. Synergy2 works between muti OS clients as does VNC.

VNC has its place, namely to control remote desktops whose screens are not within your field of view. However, if you have multiple physical screens available to you you can share the keyboard and mouse seamlessly using Synergy2.

It's available from here:
