    I use Synergy. It supports OS X, Windows, and Linux, and feels slightly snappier than Teleport. Unfortunately, it doesn't allow you to share the clipboard on Macs.

    The Windows version does, but not the Mac version.

    That's funny, I spent today researching USB KVM Switches at work. Just make sure that you get a KVM that supports non-PC mice and keyboards (not all of them do.) It might not know how to pass a "Command" key or an "Option" key for example. And you'll want to avoid ones with software drivers. I like IOGear's KVM's, they've got some nice features. As for sharing a clipboard -- c'mon, think about it, how could that even be possible??? :apple:
