Today, I came across linuxmpx blog. The only post there instantly caught my attention: War Between Linux MPX And Microsoft Surface. (linuxmpx blog “has been archived or suspended for a violation of our [Wordpress] Terms of Service”)

It turned out that MPX (Multi-Pointer X Server) “is a modification of the X server to support multiple mice and keyboards in X“. Using MPX, you can plug more than one mouse/keyboard and use them simultaneously.

The following video is a demo of MPX in action:

Here is another video showing what can be done using MPX:

As soon as I install openSUSE (and get me an additional mouse đŸ™‚ ), I’ll try it. You may be wondering: Is it better than Microsoft Surface? Well, at least it is for free!
