    Default Intel: Samsung Clobbering Others With Tizen

    Phoronix: Intel: Samsung Clobbering Others With Tizen

    There's a bit of a spat that started between Intel and Samsung developers working on the Tizen operating system...

    I've lost track. What is the current future of the Linux phone? Maemo? Moblin? MeeGo? Meltemi? Tizen? Mer? Jolla? WebOS? Bada? Sailfish?

    Obviously Android. Although I liked the N900.

    Maemo - maintained by the community
    Moblin - dead (development stopped by Intel)
    MeeGo - dead (dumped by all participants after Nokias 11/2 Elopocalipse)
    Meltemi - dead (development stopped by Nokia)
    Tizen - status uncertain (developed behind closed doors, which also causes issues like the one described in this article)
    Mer - alive and kicking (= MEeGo Reconstructed - continues where MeeGo originally stopped; it is basically a metadistribution without any GUI; can be easily used for building fully functional mobile distros)
    Jolla - alive (based on mer with custom UI & polishing; should get its own device/s soon)
    Sailfish - alive (this is basically just Jolla licensed to other OEMs; basically like Iceweasel in Debian)
    WebOS - alive but uncertain (opensourced, but loosing support for running on its original hardware in the process; currently no plans for releasing further WebOS devices)
    Bada - dead (development stopped by Samsung; parts might land in Tizen to universal acclaim )

    Clusterfuck is the only word i can think of that describes what happens to mobile linux -except for android- the last few years.

    Hope Jolla will manage to put out something that is as good as the N9. HW -which IS important- and SW wise. They are the same people after all.

    Firefox OS - developed by Mozilla, first devices expected from ZTE in early 2013 (current demos run on hacked Android phones).
    OpenEmbedded - not strictly aimed at Smartphones, but derived distros like OpenMoko are. Community developed, limited relevance for consumers.
    Qt Extended (formerly Qtopia) - ran on some phones, development has been abandoned.

    Personally, I think that Tizen, Firefox OS and Jolla will have a chance if they establish a common set of developer tools that allows to target all three at once.

    Isn't Firefox Os something that just runs on top of a linux base??

    BTW anyone knows if Jolla is using Wayland??

    Well, there's a few ex-MeeGo people at Jolla, most of whom weren't directly involved in hardware or software development, out of a couple of thousand when MeeGo wound up. So I think the whole 'continuation of the N9' thing has been massively, massively overplayed.

    "Arjan van de Ven noticed that the modern C-based Bootchart tool was replaced by a 2005 Java-version of Bootchart that is quite old and carries less features"

    Sounds like a regression...
    So what's the big deal? Just REVERT IT ALL!

    Looks like Samsung just dropped a big poo on a public repository because they kept code inhouse without being synchronized with the public repositories. If so, I'd say it's Samsung's fault and isn't the responsibility of the community to clean up Samsung's mess. No doubt they pushed it to the community hoping that somebody in the community would cherry pick for them exactly what to be included and excluded. It didn't happen, so just revert all the push Samsung did and if they have something to contribute, force them to work with Intel if they want to have it included.

    This is a problem of Samsung going out of their way to *NOT* work with Intel and the community so it's their own mess that they made, and a mess that they need to clean up on their own. Samsung just hasn't yet learned how to collaborate well with other companies and the community so this is their time to learn.

    Then its up to them to prove that they can do better and create something worthy no matter if they were involved in the N9 or not.
