    Do you mean a jukebox style machine? I'm currently building an easy to use "mp3 jukebox" for my grandmother since she has just moved into her new place. It uses Linux MCE and is a pretty basic smaller machine, with a touch-screen. Although it doesn't use iTunes, you can make a machine similar.

    sorry for being unclear. I meant so that when your listening to a song, there's an app up, and it's the focus of the desktop. If you're just looking at the desktop, it's something about the song playing. Thanks

    thanks. I don't mean that it has to be one, full screen app, I need to see the desktop. More like a collection of different apps.

    could you get that link for me? thanks. Also, if anyone can find something with a minimalist twist, that would be great. Thanks again
