Aside from the usual on-screen orbiter, I use a Windows XP laptop to control LinuxMCE. The laptop is a bit big and clunky to have on the coffee table full-time, so I got a webpad or PDA to act as my coffee-table orbiter full time.

Windows XP Laptop

To set up my Windows XP Laptop to control Windows XP, I simply followed the instructions here.

Nokia N800 Webpad

I use the Nokia N800 as a coffee-table orbiter. It's small, looks decent, and works. I use this orbiter used as a supplement to the on-screen orbiter.

To set up the Nokia N800 I followed the instructions here (I used the normal instructions, not the "Alternative" ones). Note that my N800 is running OS2008.
