    Exactly. No one believes in Tizen, not even the Linux Foundation. I'm not even sure why did they decide to kill Meego. There is something that is not convincing me in this story. Sounds like its all a big fat bullshit vaporware. I'm very disappointed from the Meego story.

    That's a very curious list. Webkit is a fork of KHTML, which was started before Netscape code was made open-source, and it was far superior during the early years. Then it stagnated somewhat before being picked up by Apple. And GTK is really an old toolkit, with GTK+ being just C++ bindings.

    gtkmm has c++ bindings. gtk+ is still C. gtk is dunno, perhaps sth totally different.

    Shortly after they announced the tizen crapoware thing, intel announced support for ANDROID. They are/have given up the idea of partnering with some other entity to develop something that HAS ALREADY BEEN DONE. Tizen isn't going anywhere. There is nothing IN IT for intel -- or anybody else except those who came up with tizen to start with. Might as well accept THE dominant open source platform and play nice already. That's all Intel **CAN** do, otherwise their hardware will fade away into irrelevance.

    Default Well, time for a "a little less vaporware" article now

    It looks like Samsung is actually going to use Tizen:

    Default A Little Less Vaporware Indeed

    Tizen has actually released some code.

    At first glance it looks like it consists mostly of Samsung's SLP, with very little MeeGo to be found anywhere.
