Synergy is an application to control remote screens with your local mouse and keyboard over the network, cross platform. You could use Linux as your main OS and have a seperate box with Windows next to it, and use your Linux mouse to control windows. On Ubuntu 17.10 the mouse cursor is not visible, but does work. This snippet provides a fix. Hint, wayland is in the way.
Log out to the Login screen, open the Cog menu and select "Ubuntu on Xorg" as the desktop session. Then the cursor is displayed. zx
