Love Synergy.  Quick Synergy looks so much easier to use
 
Synergy is not at all difficult to use or set up under windows.

My primary rig is a windows machine due to me playing a lot of games and I wanted to experiment in trying to make the rest of my daily tasks being done on a linux box.

 Rather than having many keyboards and mice lying about I tried different solutions, the first being a headless box which I could connect through VNC and have remote desktop access, as due to being a noob I am not totally comfortable with the CLI.

Next I tried Synergy, this was the answer to my dreams, no lag compared to using vnc and real easy to set up even for a new user like me. My only issue was, when I rebooted my router as it is my DHCP Server would lose connection but I solved this by reserving an address on my router rather than applying static IP on pcs themselves.

 Now , it just works and I'm sooooo Happy!! ;))
 
Synergy #ftw. Best office prank: set up Synergy on somebody's machine and when they sit down, use windows hotkeys to minimize the window they're working on.

Over. and over.
 
Kevin i have to agree with you.  I set up Synergy on the PCs in the manufacturing control room at my Plant.  Didn't take long at all.  But Quick Synergy takes a few steps out the equation.  There is always room for improvement and Quick Synergy does this.
