A Simple Way To Connect PC with a Mac

How many of us have wanted to easily move data or links between a pc and a Mac ? Well here it is - synergy: [noun] a mutually advantageous conjunction of distinct elements. This software has been highly sought after for many people and would appear to work seamlessly for both connected platforms.

Synergy lets you easily share a single mouse and keyboard between multiple computers with different operating systems, each with its own display, without special hardware. It's intended for users with multiple computers on their desk since each system uses its own monitor(s). Redirecting the mouse and keyboard is as simple as moving the mouse off the edge of your screen. Synergy also merges the clipboards of all the systems into one, allowing cut-and-paste between systems. Furthermore, it synchronizes screen savers so they all start and stop together and, if screen locking is enabled, only one screen requires a password to unlock them all.

The theory behind synergy is simple: the server captures mouse, keyboard, clipboard, and screen saver events and forwards them to one or more clients.
