Tizen Is Announced; MeeGo Will Transition To It
Phoronix: Tizen Is Announced; MeeGo Will Transition To It
The MeeGo Project announced last night they will be transitioning to Tizen, a new project from the Linux Foundation and others. Tizen is yet another mobile Linux attempt...
what does this mean for Qt?
As a day to day user of the KDE desktop one of the key things that made nokia/meego interesting was its use and promotion of QT, if Tizen doesn’t use that then it lessens my interest in exactly the same way as Nokia downplaying “linux” in its QT marketed handsets.
I also doubt the capability of Tizen to be anything more than still-born if it doesn’t use a decent mobile focussed UI toolkit like Qt.
I have seen too many of these mobile linux partnerships come and go to no real effect, at the end of the day nokia is on its fifth generation of mobile linux products, that is at least a real track record to place some trust in.
I’m all for meego being folded into Tizen, and wishing it every success, but without nokia and Qt i remain sceptical, and quite happy to continue with an N9 for the next couple of years.
