Personally, I've heard Myth described as 'A PVR by developers for
developers', and with that in mind, gaining users or a market share or
the like isn't really the goal. The goal is more to get other people
to play with the code and make it into something great, not become the
most used app in the world or anything like that.

just my thoughts.
