I certainly don't value it that way and wasn't the one that said it,
though the editing certainly made it seem that way.

I think the only way to value an open source application is the adoption
percentage of possible implementations. (eg Open source fulfilment
ratio="total users"/"potential users" X 100).

It doesn't matter how good MythTV is it will never be in every living
room but there are plenty of possible developments that would make it a
more readily adopted application.
