      It does exactly the same but its free of charge instead of having to pay 69 € if you have more than two 1-monitor pcs to control.

      Its free and works just fine. Maybe if you are a system admin and want different layouts for different machines maybe you want to pay for this software and a bit more... But Im a programmer and all I want a sharing of the mouse and keyboard at my desk so I don't need to use both... Ive got terminals for everything else!!
