have @symless #synergy completely abandoned #opensource for #freeware or has their site been hacked by @bartelsmedia @sharemouse

google for symless synergy download and you get a link to an unindexed page for symless sharemouse

DO NOT CLICK ON THE LINK ON THIS PAGE as it points to a download of an obsolete freeware version of sharemouse

the official indexed symless synergy download page makes no mention of this product

if you want to try the NON linux NON opensource sharemouse then download it from here instead

the portable version is nice in that it doesnt install anything and can run from usb !

if you want to buy the non linux non opensource sharemouse instead of symless synergy then you can go to their shop

however symless have plenty to learn from their non opensource competitor sharemouse is 100 x easier to configure screens on as there is ZERO config required and no messing around with IP addresses or computer names

You will need to download m$ visual studio community and the synergy project sourcecode from git hub and then compile it yourself.

bytemark kvm web hosting

kernel virtual machine (kvm) virtualisation

There is yet another virtualisation technology on the block !


kvm only run on processors that supports x86 hvm (vt/svm instructions set) whereas Xen also allows running modified operating systems on non-hvm x86 processors using a technique called paravirtualization. kvm does not support paravirtualization for cpu but may support paravirtualization for device drivers to improve I/O performance.
kvm FAQ

Proprietary vendors take note :
Xen and kvm make use of Intel-VT and AMD-V hardware virtualisation features !
