The vision of the MediaPortal project is to create a free open source media centre application, which supports all advanced media centre functions, and is accessible to all Windows users. In reaching this goal MediaPortal:
Promotes open source ideology, building on and supporting other open source projects
Promotes the sharing of knowledge and collaboration using information sharing tools and practices
Understands development is a team effort and treats users as co-developers, which has proven to be the most effective option for rapid development
Applies the 'Law of Diminishing Return' so the majority of effort is invested in implementing features which have the most benefit and widest general usage by the community.
