I think a “10 Minute Install And Enjoy Success” tutorial by using Virtual Things would be good:
Step 1: unzip the openhab.zip and run the start.sh
Step 2: Bind the Virtual-things (V-Things ?) binding
Step 3: add a v-lamp
Step 4: add a switch and see how the v-lamp reacts
Step 5: Rejoice.
I guess one would need a little web application (“V-Playground” ?) to display the v-things, so the new user would immediately see in the browser what the v-things do.
For Step 1 it would help if there was a toplevel folder in the zip as apache-tomcat.zip and almost everybody else have.
