Well, my wife may not be able to set it up or understand the complexity of the setup itself, but is able to enjoy the results (ie listening to music) ...
My setup is quite simple (not the fastest out there, but it works !)
NSLU2 with HDD
Firefly DAAP server & Twonky (this is more for the video part)
Roku's all around the house
Since Roku's has a complete UPnP implementation, you can control them (no the server) remotely from either PC (like Cidero or many others), remote, pocketpc.
The Roku's are dirt cheap, so is the NSLU2 and all software aside Twonky (which I can live without if only music) is open source and free.
I run a 12500 song collection and browse time are way acceptable.
Mostly, I am not the only one to have this kind of setup, which I know is not perfect, but does the job for me and my wife.

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. But in practice, there is.
