so you think synergy is the best choice?

For what you want, yes. You have native graphics and performance with Synergy as it is just giving you control with keyboard and mouse to the second PC. It doesn't render an image of the desktop to be send over the network like VNC, which can be slow and/or color inaccurate.

wait, if its not sending the screen then how do I see the other 2 machines? I only have one display

Like I said in my previous message, if your screen has multiple input, you can hook both computers to the same screen and just switch input to one or the other.

You use the terms "second" & "both", but the OP says he has 3, "a mac mini, pc, & nix".
Can the 3 be accommodated on a single screen in any way with Synergy?
