Comment: "Automation"? (Score 0) 47

If I have to push buttons to control the lights, systems, etc. myself then that's not "automation", that's being too lazy to walk the 10 feet to the switch. I want things such as for the house to know that if you have 3 people sitting on the couch and the DVD/DVR/whatever is set to play that it should dim the damn lights itself.

Work on porting to a cross-platform engine/library first. Without that your work will be much harder. And bullet points 6 and 7 in your system requirements are showstoppers.

Also, you may want to talk to organizations like Edubuntu, OLPC, and RPi since their primary focus is education.
