Unison is an excellent program; I simply couldn't be without it. Rsync is great for one-way stuff like backups, but when you are working on two machines regularly (not just one of them) then Unison comes into its own and is extremely helpful.

If you use a central server as one of the endpoints in the Unison synchronisation, you can synchronise >2 machines.
