Same Question - Does anyone bite your pathetic trolling attempts anymore?
And what exactly makes you think so?The way I saw their demo of Tizen on a PC is the IT industry equivalent of the concept car in the auto industry. Basically they are trying out ideas showing off their technologies but have no real intention to turn it into a real product.
They may or may not launch it themselves, the actual ultrabooks, laptops, tablets etc. may be released by some independent OEM/hardware vendor in partnership with Intel. Regardless, even if they don't launch the product themselves, they still benefit, because the devices will be using Intel CPUs and GPUs.Intel has been doing this for years first with Moblin, then with Meego and now with Tizen. I would be very surprised if they actually launched a product themselves.
Also, Moblin was way too immature, Meego plans fell apart because Nokia Eloped away from the project, so now they have Tizen - which is really just the logical continuation of the same plans. The difference is, the platform is now finally maturing to the point where it is feasible to use it in consumer products.
For the record, I am thrilled about all that Intel is doing for the open source world these days. I don't mean to sound ungrateful.
There are several major distributions that have not made the switch and probably won't due to distro specific reasons.
These include Gentoo, Slackware, Funtoo, Ubuntu, Android, Chrome OS, Firefox OS, Linux Mint, PCLinuxOS, Puppy, every current stable Debian and RHEL clone and all non-Linux OS's to name a few.
