Movino was developed as a University course project. The implementation was done with a limited amount of time and with very limited initial experience on the topic. The aim was set at proof of concept-level.
Each individual solution is far from ideal, but still roughly good enough to be usable and work as a proof of concept.
With the primary objectives met (ie. a functional prototype and a course grade), the project was released to the world in May - July of 2007 under Open Source licenses (part GPL, part LGPL). From this point on it's largely up to the rest of you to decide if you want to help the project grow or not.
