After a half year of tumbling the end is clearly near, MeeGo is dead and Tizen is born. Bad news for MeeGo. Maybe the year 2011 will be go down in history as "the mobile device os dying". MeeGo and WebOS were both exciting pieces of software. Especially WebOS with its Mojo SDK was far more ahead. But when big players shows there teeth, something dies.
So lets start, again, from the scratch and write a new OS for mobile devices.
So whats Tizen all about?
Tizen is an open source, standards-based software platform supported by leading mobile operators, device manufacturers, and silicon suppliers for multiple device categories, including smartphones, tablets, netbooks, in-vehicle infotainment devices, smart TVs, and more. Tizen will offer an innovative operating system, applications, and a user experience that consumers can take from device to device.
