You might enjoy this then:


I had x2x rigged up so could use the one mouse across all of the
screens. The 2nd and 3rd are dual head, the other two separate
machines. The other keyboard could be used to type stuff into the
machine on the far right, or if you had the main keyboard focus
directed at that machine, you could even place your hands on both
keyboards and type like that - which was kind of novel.

My desk has a lot more space these days :-)
