Can 2 people with 2 displays,keyboards,mice share 1 PC

Postposted on Tue Jan 28, 2014 11:48 pm

With the speed of new PC's these days I was wondering if 2 people with there own keyboards, mice and displys share the same PC as long as they were just surfing the net or doing HTPC duties. i can see gaming being a problem.

Pretty sure you cannot have more than one pointer device or keyboard on a PC.
Multiple keyboard or mice will simply act as one.
