Well the latter because it has much higher geek factor. :-)

Reality check - I'm thinking something like a water-resistant screen +
keypad, outside the shower but in the bathroom. It doesn't even have to
run myth - a vnc client to control myth on another system would do, so
even a basic 200 MHz arm board would work, since this would be used to
control mythmusic. I use a 'throwaway' 486-based laptop to control the
music on my deck via VNC. No great loss if it gets trashed, and cheaper
than a full outdoor setup.

Because I can? :-)
