 Re: Another alternative to headless machines...

I don't have the URL anymore, but somewhere out there a guy built his own keyboard switcher that was really funky. He made is own switcher box that in addition to keyboard/video also took serial inputs from all the machines. He then wrote an application for each machine (windows, mac, and unix) that put a little box in each bottom corner of the screen. Move the mouse into that corner and it would send a signal on the serial port to the switcher and switch you to the machine "on that side".

Pretty crazy :)
