    Phoronix: Intel Shows Off GNOME3-Based Tizen Shell

    At the Tizen conference this week in San Francisco, Intel showed off an Intel Ultrabook running their next-generation Tizen 3.0 platform that's using a shell/desktop derived from GNOME 3.x...

    They have an EFL core, they use html5 for apps and they put Gnome3 on top.


    I am not a computer engineer but what the fuck are these guys think.

      Yes, also they put the wrong guy in charge, he could be a programmer but not a speaker, he doesn't speak with confidence, can't properly talk about the ins and outs of the Tizen OS, and doesn't know what the plans for the product are.

        What interests me is this http://opensource.samsung.com/ and NX 300 OS sources based on Tizen.



        Been wondering why Phoronix has not made a news article of that

          Do people seriously say "Guh-nome 3"? 'Cause, like, gnome's been a word for a long time, and it's pronounced "gnome". At least he didn't shout "GNOME 3" I guess.

          And while I'm complaining, what's this "Intel Ultrabook" business? All Ultrabooks are Intel. It's a trademark Intel owns. And for that very reason it is totally ridiculous to talk about an "Ultrabook" as a type of computer, as Intel wants. They're just notebooks, which are the same as laptops. We're about to see a bunch of morons rejecting AMD-based notebooks saying, "I don't want a notebook; everyone uses Ultrabooks now!" Now you're free to do as you like, but I would have said, "Here is a video of Tizen running on a laptop." I'm pretty sure it would run exactly the same on a laptop or desktop with no Intel parts.

          And why the f are they using a laptop and mouse for a phone OS, with a bunch of Linux applications that require keyboard and mouse. Tizen is a phone OS! I've already seen Gnome 3 on a laptop.

            From the Tizen website: https://www.tizen.org/about
            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.
            So having a mouse/touchpad and a keyboard is not something that you won't ever find on Tizen devices.

              Actually AMD releasing their own brand of of thin notebook when Richland APU get release, if I am not mistaken.

                I'm glad GNOME3 is finally finding its way onto places where it belongs instead of the desktop.

                  i am glad gnome 3 replace the old unconfortable and unproductive taskbar and small startmenu pattern which i was wating for 15 years to come to desktop.

                    Perhaps you have missed the 50+ alternative WMs that have other paradigms than taskbar+startmenu.
