I like the touchscreen approach also, I have a touch screen monitor, touch
screen wall mountable pc, tablet pc and ipaq all of which I use with

A bit of an overkill perhaps but I settled on the tablet pc as being the
most practical as the scroll bars & buttons on the useful skins are all way
too small for the average finger, you really need to use a pen but this
works great with Fishbone.

I'm very interested to hear what you end up doing with the AirPanel as your
Slimserver control...please post to this list with your experiences with it.

I don't have an AirPanel, but my dream home audio device involves a touch
screen. The AirPanel/Slimserver combo to control a squeezebox would be very
close to a perfect solution for me (aside from the Windows requirement,
which sucks). I'm curious how well the AirPanel works with some of the other
Slimserver skins, particularly FishBone...
