    But with how often I reload OSes, also test BSDs, need to change settings in GRUB, need to change settings in BIOS, VT switch, etc, it sounds like it would be more hassle than what it's worth with still having to manually reconnect keyboards... And after all, I don't have any issue with having multiple keyboards on my desk.
    I can attest to this. Synergy is great if you have a few machines that never change OSes, and if you don't play games. But for what you do, or even a OS hobbyist and casual gamer like me, it becomes utterly useless. Many games don't work well with it; Minecraft is a great example. Even if you don't have any other machines running Synergy to switch to, just having it running in the background sends your mouse into a spinning frenzy. It has also affected me playing Rust, causing me to "head look" rather than "mouse look". And as several of my systems are re-imaged with different OSes every few days, Synergy doesn't stick around long enough on them to be worth the trouble.

    All that said, I did buy a copy since I got a lot of use out of it back when I had a Macbook Air set up as a second workstation.

    See my earlier comment in this thread when someone else tried to recommend it... Doesn't sound like it'd work at all for my purposes.

    Ever heard of Synergy Michael? I think you need it, like kinda bad. I have a dual system setup with one monitor and keyboard and mouse setup, and it worked mostly like a charm. Great opportunity to have just one fancypants RGB LED yolo mechanical keyboard, and 3 computers you can just switch between by either pressing a button or flicking your mouse between the screens.

    Michael , I would really want to know how you find the energy to do all this. It would actually be very interesting if you can try to measure the amount of coffee you drink in one week. I am actually starting to be a bit concerned that you chew other stuff as well to stay awake. Do you sleep at all?
    10 cups of decaf coffee a day, ~1 cup of non-decaf a day if I'm lucky. Wife usually doesn't let me have non-decaf coffee these days due to my blood pressure and doctor's orders...But sleep ~6 hours a day if I'm lucky.

    Wife wanted the colors that were there.

    Did you set it to be standard desk height, or typing height? I had had some custom office furniture made for me many years ago that is typing height.
