    HAB in openHAB stands for Home Automation Bus. openHAB is an opensource JAVA implementation and already runs on various platforms like Linux, Windows but also on the Raspberry Pi. The user interface can run on computers, tablets or phones. I think the Minix X8-H would be a great platform for home automation and as such openHAB could become an ideal "server" platform. Many hardware vendors provide products on this market and their number is growing. In order to achieve this target I've got a few questions:

    - Does a proven JAVA emulator/implementation exist for the Minix X8-H?
    - Did anybody already succeed to run the openHAB server on Minix?

    Quite a good question which would interest many people out there.

    I searched extensively for JRE on Android and there is none or at least none official from Sun. This means no chance to get OpenHab on Minix X8-H.

    Probably it might work on a Minix with Windows like the Z64. Of course, performances would be a concern, but it is worth a try.

    Have fun,
