I'm looking at doing this for my mom's new Kitchen(their in the middle
of remodeling). This way she could have her TV, Music, Recipes, etc on
one convenient screen. I was wondering what touch screen your using
and if you have any advice in this area? I'll be providing her a
remote control to use with the system as well as the ability to use
the touchscreen.

Is it possible to add a button to skins for "Esc"? If so, perhaps a
touchscreen skin needs to happen.
