I've been fiddling around with multiple computers this year. I hate it. But I realized today that what I really want is this:
I want a single workstation for peripherals (monitor, keyboard, mouse) that allows me to hook into multiple machines. I want to be able to change computers as easily as changing desktops. It sounds so simple when I say it out loud like this. The solution seems obvious: on each desktop place a different VNC (or some kind of remote desktop) connection which is maximized. Will VNC (or equivalent) allow me to hook into the remote hardware the way I want? Is this really the solution that I'm looking for? Is it possible it will be this easy?
Probably not. But stay tuned just in case I've finally found the answer to life, the universe and multiple computers.
