    Try Synergy. Setup was a bit tricky (as in config file and a bit of math tricky), and I don't have it set up with my Mac when running Windows-side, but it works famously. No lag whatsoever on the mouse.

    :D

    I can post some details of my setup if it helps you out. It's Mac-to-Mac, but at least the Windows client has a GUI, so that ought to be easier.

    Which machine would be the server?

    I don't usually do this, but okay, I'll send you a PM. Can you wait about 10 minutes though? Just watching an episode of Veronica Mars.

    Okay, I'll drop you a line. A rather pretentious SN, but I'll go along with it.
