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?

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.

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.
