    That puts it very nicely. There are not few who believe that Tizen is more or less dead. This is why it is good that Sailfish goes forward to demonstrate what Wayland is capable of in mobile.

      Wayland is already working and shipping in various distributions. The major desktops just don't use it, yet.

        Especially when there's been more recent doubt in the future of Tizen, mentioned in this article.

          You people need to finally learn that there are two very different projects being developed under the Tizen brand: IVI and Mobile.
          Tizen IVI is very much alive and very successful in its industry.

            Obviously we are talking about Sailfish/Tizen/Wayland on mobile phones here. And it looks like Sailfish might be the first out of the door with a phone that has a Wayland based UI, while Tizen phones keep being postponed.

            [rant]In fact, the situation is so pathetic that Tizen now has an app challenge with 1st November 2013 submission deadline, but it is highly questionable whether actual Tizen phones will be on the market before then. I mean, how can you properly develop an app without a phone to run it on?[/rant]

                The topic is Wayland and Wayland is already present in consumer devices via IVI.
                Any claim that Tizen had an "unclear development path" is wrong. The path is clear: IVI is where Tizen's party is. In market reality Tizen Mobile is just a side project.

                Tizen works with Qt just fine. Utilizing Qt applications can be developed and deployed without much hassle on BlackBerry 10, Ubuntu Touch, Jolla/Sailfish, Plasma Active, and Tizen Mobile/IVI.

                  Well if I visit the about page on tizen.org this certainly reads differently (emphasis mine):

                  Tizen is an open source, standards-based software platform supported by leading mobile operators, device manufacturers, and silicon suppliers for multiple device categories such as smartphones, tablets, netbooks, in-vehicle infotainment devices, and smart TVs.
                  IVI is mentioned only in fourth place, behind netbooks even.

                  Of course I can also develop on a different platform or even in an emulator. But that only gives me a remote idea how the application will behave on a Tizen phone.

                  I guess that I have already derailed this thread from the topic of Wayland and Weston too much, so I will stop posting about Tizen here.

                    Learn to read. I wrote "market reality", not some ambition stated on a website.

                      Oh great, their ambitions are disconnected from reality. Certainly makes people confident when looking at that project
