    best LMS front end(s) for a tablet Windows pc?

    I'm about to buy a new laptop, and have been thinking about getting a Lenovo X220, which converts to tablet mode with a multitouch screen. Are there any good LMS frontends for this kind of hardware at present? I like iPeng on my iPod touch, and I'd be pleasantly amazed if there were anything comparable for a Windows touchscreen. And if there's nothing comparable, what's the best there is at present? Thanks.

    Port the Touch and/or Nokia770 skins from SBS to LMS?

    I just copied the Nokia770 skin folder from my old SBS dir to my LMS install. Restarted LMS and the skin *just worked* ...or seemed to in Google Chrome.

    Thanks, that's a good start for what I had in mind. Does the 1-by-1 Artwork work for you? I get a list sorted by artistsort. The scrolling is a little glitchy, maybe because I have LMS set to very long lists. But still, it's more functional than I expected it to be after all the 'onebrowser' changes.

    I've tried both and prefer the Android. The apple stuff has more polish and shine and the iOS stuff can be pretty cool, but it's expensive to upgrade. Android tablets, on the other hand, can be purchased dirt-cheap if you know where to look and have almost identical functionality. The best tablet pc is especially nice, with gesture-based controls and a slick, tabbed interface a la Chrome. It also runs flash, which is nice.

    Thanks, but in this case I am replacing a "real pc", that is, a desktop replacement that needs to do computing tasks far beyond what a 1.2GHz 512MB RAM tablet can do. And looking for a Windows interface for when the pc does secondary duty as a SB interface. For a lot of tasks the tablets can replace the pc, but for other tasks they are still completely inadequate.

    Not tried it for a while, but it should work fine..
    There's touch-screen mode down one of the menus which makes the main
    buttons, tabs and text bigger and more clickable..

    Has anyone had any luck having the Touch skin work on 7.9?

    It loads up but most of the functionality is missing!
