Last night I got all excited about Multiplicity, and I still think it was an appropriate response on my part. However, someone pointed out that thereâ€™s no need to wait, and then pay for Multiplicity. There is already a free open-source application that does most of what Multiplicity claims to do. This application is called Synergy. Of course, Synergy feels like an open-source project as it lacks a very friendly user-interface, and has a few stated bugs. It does get the job done though! I got it working with my Windows desktop and OSX Powerbook tonight, and it is very exciting. I can control both computers with the same keyboard and mouse. Between the two computers, I have three displaysâ€¦ two belonging to the Windows machine.
Check out Synergy if youâ€™ve got more than one machine and display laying around. If you desire more polish than it offers, at least play around with it until Multiplicity hits the market.
