      LogMeIn vs Multiplicity opinions
      This alternative is disputed. LogMeIn is still a legitimate alternative to Multiplicity, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      Really very different functionality. Multiplicity is for locally sharing keyboard/mouse across multiple computers. LogMeIn is remote desktop software.

      LogMein is for REMOTE control /viewing/meeting etc. Multiplicity is for Local (as in, on the same desk) control/viewing etc., essentially functioning as a controller without being a viewer also. LogMeIn does not function as a controller unless you also have a view window open.
