Mouse without Borders Comments

Ditched this one

Negative Comment by HunterZ
about Mouse without Borders Dec 2016

I had to ditch this one because I was trying to use it to control an HTPC from my laptop, and it maps all mouse and keyboard type devices on both machines to the active screen. This was unacceptable because it prevented my HTPC IR remote from working on the HTPC when using my laptop.
