Currently I use my old Mac mini as my iTunes server. In order to remotely control Itunes from other Macs in my house I simply start up a remote desktop screen. This has the benefit of giving me access to the native interface of any application running on the mini, not just iTunes. That's handy because the mini is hooked up to our LCD TV for use a DVD player as well.

Is there something extra special about netTunes above and beyond a simple remote screen that makes it worth the money?

The fact that it's specific to iTunes so the window acts basically the way it does locally (minimizes, maximizes, etc), rather than offering up a full screen UI. (We also do some nice things like rebroadcasting the song announcement notifications, allow local control in the menu bar and server window, etc.)
