MCS – Multiple Computer Setup

The idea is to use multiple computers and have a seamless desktop where

  1. the clipboard is common from computer to computer
  2. you can slide from 1 monitor to another 
  3. copy and paste files from one computer to another
  4. use a single keyboard and mouse 
  5. not be required to use the same operating system on each system

I found an open source project that seems promising named Synergy. NOTE( June 2019 ): Yes it worked too well now the project is commercial software. The following links redirect to the commercial page.

There are still open source versions at these locations
