HTPC Cases

What cases would be good to get and would work well with linux. I know you think of cases always working, but I would like a case with a remote and a front screen of some sort. Doesnt matter if it is a VFD or LCD. What case do you think would integrate into one of linux's media software or how hard would it be to integrate it into those?

I just did a google search and this site seems to have some pretty kool looking cases. Not sure how linux will work using one.

I use my G4 Mini Mac as a HTPC with a wireless keyboard & mouse. It's hooked up to my 36" Westinghouse HDTV and it's been working out fine for over a year now. The new Intel mini's come with a remote control also.
