I have two monitors on my desk. Dual monitors on your PC may be nice, but having two different PCs on them can be even nicer – you get twice the CPU power, after all. Up until this week, I needed two keyboards and two mice on my desk. Then I found Synergy – it’s a software that lets you use the same Mouse/Keyboard/Clipboard on several machines. When I move my mouse out the right side of one screen, the second PC comes active, and the pointer appears on the left side. Very cool. The two PCs can even share the clipboard, so I can copy/paste between PCs really fast. And they can run different OSs, too – so Linux on the right, Windows on the left, for example. That’s way cool.
