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).

    This puppy is pretty slick. You don't need multiple monitors like it says, works with two computers and one monitor. You do need the ability on the monitor to connect a seperate input from each system. In my case I used DVI and HDMI. Set it up Sever/Client push the mouse off screen to the left (in my case) and switch the LCD to HDMI. Works perfectly. Push the cursor back to the right and switch the LCD to DVI and it is back. Works like a KVM.

    Of coursre it works perfectly if you have more than one display, laptop or another sytem. Just put them wher you want them in the control panel, top. bottom etc and move the mouse cursor off screen in that direction and you will be working on the other display.

    I use Win 7 64 with the 64 bit version of Synergy.

    This has worked great for me on two laptops and a netbook all surrounding my desktop monitor just for kicks. :D

    All modern versions of windows are part of the "NT" family, so yes, they all work. The project's documentation hasn't been updated in about 10 years lol

    It seems to be working fine for me with win 7. I have a triple monitor setup mac/win7/linux and works like a charm.
