    Default Choices for opensource platform

    Hi all - I'm not exactly new to HA, having played with X10, LinuxMCE, Rako etc in the past, but I'm getting back into it now that it's becoming more universal and cost effective.

    I've been trying to find some sort of comparison of all the opensource suites available, to act as the hub of the network, with a RFXCOM USB transceiver etc at the heart of it. Can't seem to find any comparison at all though. Can anyone point me to a comparison chart, or give me the low down?

    Priorities for me are flexibility, device compatibility, runs on Linux (Debian), slickness etc.

    Suites I have found by searching but know little about at this point are:

    domotica
    freedomotic
    opensourceautomation
    vcrib
    openremote
    misterhouse
    openhab
    homidom

    Thanks for the info. I'm kind of hoping that someone somewhere will have put together a feature comparison chart, similar to this one that was really helpful when I was looking at setting up a media server:
