so that means that if you preface comments as side notes, that they can
ignore the reality that most computers/motherboards do not come with
PS/2 connections any more and just offer USB for mouse/keyboard
If you buy a KVM that doesn't service USB mouse/keyboard connections, it
will be obsolete very soon - rendering your warning somewhat useless -
that was my point - sorry you missed it.
