Re: Linux Groups Launch Tizen to Fight Android and IOS

I don't think this will gain traction. Android and iOS have another kind of backing which is hard to ignore: the software and hardware juggernauts Google and Apple. Their brand recognition is part of why the OSes are so popular.

Re: Linux Groups Launch Tizen to Fight Android and IOS

So which mobiles are gonna have this OS? I would love to use one but the sad fact is I have used Linux only for 3-4 hours in last 8 years.

Re: Linux Groups Launch Tizen to Fight Android and IOS

At best it will get acquired by some competitor .. The battle lines were drawn long back ..
I don't think there is any space for another front .. commercially atlteast ..

Maybe if it can mature to something outside the mobile computing segment then we can surely see some benefit ..

but as always .. An idea never goes to waste ..

Re: Linux Groups Launch Tizen to Fight Android and IOS

I find that Samsung backing Tizen is completely out-of-order. They promote Bada OS as main platform for mobile along with hardware for android and WP7 now they are working on Tizen. It doesn't make any sense for me

Re: Linux Groups Launch Tizen to Fight Android and IOS

Its a shame that a company like Intel kept on abandoning the project, first Moblin, then meego. Who will use such an OS which has so unfaithful leaders. If Intel wanted the HTML5 implemented so badly they could have added APIs to the existing Meego repos, but they thought of abandoning it completely.

Tizen marks the end of meego and use of not so OSS the QT toolkit. Which is a shame. Even though Nokia has commited support for N9 and similar devices it will be interesting to see if it actually do it.

Add to that I doubt any 3rd party vendor will release netbooks based on Tizen, cause those who has released with Meego are done for now

Also meego = tizen..

Samsung won't market tizen in the mobile segment.. Guy feeling

Meego != Tizen. Meego usese the QT toolkit while Tizen will be build for HTML5 applications merging the goodies from Meego in a completely new way.

Re: Linux Groups Launch Tizen to Fight Android and IOS

Right... Tizen = (Meego - Qt) + HTML5

Tizen is replacing Meego with LiMo alongside it now.

Re: Linux Groups Launch Tizen to Fight Android and IOS

we need a competitor to Android as it becoming a little closed these days.
on another note if developers don't make apps for Tizen then it won't get popular!
