I’m rarely really really impressed with a piece of software, but I’ve just installed synergy and it is absolutely awesome. Anyone running two desktops consistently (like I do) needs this software.

In the picture below my mouse now moves in a completely straight line across all 3 monitors – the left most of which is a Debian Sarge box, whilst middle and right are a Windows box. Not only that, but it shares the clipboard as well.

I am so happy I could cry. Anyone want to buy a 2 port KVM? I don’t need mine any more.
