  1. Mouse Without Borders lets you control different computers seamlessly across a range of monitors sitting next to each other using the same mouse and keyboard. Think of it as software…

  2. Like Synergy - keyboard functionality will be necessary before this is really useful.
  3. ...Doesn't the video clearly show a keyboard, and shouldn't keyboard use be really obvious? Way to mouth off without paying attention to the details.

    In any case, the extra functionality seems like a nice upgrade from Synergy, provided that you're only running Windows machines all at once. Me, I'd need support for 98, 2000, Mac OS X, and occasionally Ubuntu Linux, so I'll need to stick with Synergy.

    As an avid user of Synergy, I'll have to give this a try if not at least to try the drag and drop functionality. =o

    silly dude - Input director has been doing that for years - why'd he waste the time deving something that already exists.
    It also does the syncronise locking etc and even syncs your screen saver :)

    Luckily for us though, Mw/oB has more features that it brings to the table :)
  8. Sounded awesome, worked great, enabling me to work more efficiently & with less hassle can only be a good thing. :)

    The only issue I have is a minor one, it is not running on startup on the one xp system I still have for testing purposes, I given it is so new searching for help is not helping either :) so it is a manual start for that machine ATM.

    One feature I would like to see included in the future, is the ability to place second row systems under a particular top row system, at the moment I have to effectively "go the long way" through the screen on my left, to get to the small screen directly under my main/centre screen.
