SimpleTouchFE is a great frond end for touch screen systems, although it can be used with a mouse as well. It works very well as a front end for a kiosk system as it completely hides the windows environment and can prevent users from getting to windows with a pin-code system.

Optionally, SimpleTouchFE allows you to close any program it has launched with either a hot-key or a click pattern. i.e. tapping the upper-left corner of the screen 4 times will close the current application. This feature allows you to close applications such as MAME which usually requires keyboard input (ESC) to close.

SimpleTouchFE is still being developed and its developer, Lave Laar, is an active member of the forums and is very responsive to suggestions and comments.
