I've found that for fingering issues, more time with the PC seems to help, where I can slow down the movements, work on phrases, etc.

It also helps if you like the sound of the PC you're playing...

When on the pipes themselves, I concentrate less on the fingering and more on the overall sound, getting into the tune.
