I understand what you are saying, but until the messaging system in LMCE is vastly speeded up I cannot think about using it for my motion triggered lights and to repond to my X10 wall switches. They need to be as quick as possible.the dcerouter is fast enough for that. It's not the messaging system. I think the X10 implementation should be improved. Look at what ddamron has done for insteon simply using GSD (http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=3309.0).
