I have 3 different KVM's here. A SOHO 4 port PS/2 + USB used mostly for my
gaming PC's (since it switches sound also), a 4 Port Belkin Serial or PS/2
that I use with my older server/cad machine/test rigs, and a nice Dr.Bott 4
port ADB KVM for my old 68K Macs. Too bad my 386/40 cannot use PS/2 mice, I
could get another mouse off my desk. So those 3 kvm's cut my keyboard,
monitor, and mouse needs from 12 sets down to 3 sets at a reasonable cost.
