Here's a document worth reading about the subject.

I don't really see the point in your argument here.
And Canonical obviously isn't wanting to make a profit, right? They just put ads in the dash for fun...Let me remind you that behing Tizen there is not only Intel but really Samsung. A company obvioulsy interested in the smarthphone and tablet market dominance. Their bussines is hardware, not advertisement , so they are not interested in spreding adware (Android) like Google does. Their dream, like any other company, is to have total control over the software too, so they are backing up software that eventually will fit their needs . So these are not "Tizen-based intel ultrabooks for the community ", there are Samsung ultrabooks with corporate profits in mind. Sadly, there is an obvious conflict of interests with Canonical who is on their way.
You need to understand that Tizen isn't really just one monolithic operating system. It's at least three operating systems: mobile, PC and IVI. Even then, there's many optional parts that individual hardware vendors may choose to add or leave out. Samsung is in it for the mobile, they are mainly interested in smartphones, maybe some tablets. And Samsung may want a platform they have more control in, there's no doubt about that, but that's not any worse than Android. At least Tizen is based on Glibc, Wayland and other technologies that have much more in common with actual Linux distros than Android does.
But I don't really care about the mobile Tizen. Sailfish is more interesting on the mobile side anyway (IMHO). I care about the PC Tizen, the one that will run on Intel ultrabooks, which are of course x86-based, and will have Intel GPUs. It's the perfect combination: latest Intel tech, best Intel GPUs, Wayland and no need to worry about drivers because Intel... Intel has already demoed an ultrabook running Tizen. They had the Steam client already working on it. The PC Tizen will use Gnome Shell as the DE, with a Tizen-specific extension called "Tizen shell".
Oh well, if we're gonna start speculating things without any basis on facts... the guys who hold the launch codes to all the nukes may just decide to trash the entire world, one day...At the end, Samsung and Intel can just trash it if their strategies change, just like HP did, jut like Nkia did. Oh! and just like Intel itself did with Tizen ancestors. That's the real world deal.
Same Question - Does anyone bite your pathetic trolling attempts anymore?
