This is an idea that's been floating in my head for a few days, and I just wanted to see if it was feasible, and if so what the best way to go about implementing it would be.
I have several computers running linux (Ubuntu to be specific), and I was wondering if it would be possible to employ Xorg's server/client design to create a virtual KVM system.
My idea is to have them set up so that the computer my mouse, keyboard and monitor is attached to is acting as a client to all three servers (including itself), and to switch between them by hitting Ctrl+Alt+F6,7, or 8.
So, is this possible, or something similar? If it is possible, what are potential pitfalls. For example, is response time likely to be affected if the server and client are connected over a 10/100 internal network?
