    Default Samsung Continues Sponsoring Enlightenment

    Phoronix: Samsung Continues Sponsoring Enlightenment

    In late 2009 we figured out Samsung has been sponsoring the development of Enlightenment, the stacking window manager popular with some Linux enthusiasts. Since then the Enlightenment project has been more open about the gratuity provided by Samsung, and this major electronics vendor keeps paying them. Enlightenment is used on some of their mobile devices. Separately, Enlightenment has found its way onto refrigerators. There's more good news today out of the Samsung-sponsored Enlightenment camp...

    It's sounds like Bada is there backup plan, perhaps to hold over Google's head if they don't like the direction Android is taking

    Interestingly enough Bada sells better than WP7 + WinMo.

    That's not really surprising. Even Microsoft itself gets more revenue out of Android than it gets from WP7 sales.
    WP7 is too little too late.

    I find bada the best mobile os. It brings elements I like from both Android and iOs on high quality hardware all for a much much lower price then it's counterparts.
    Bada 2.0 beta rocks on my wave II.

    Bada's also growing, unlike WP7 and RIM. It has a fairly nice cut of the Asian market, Koreas in particular, with its own app ecosystem etc.

    I would rather like a bada phone. A true linux platform instead of Android.

    I've never heard of bada. How does it compare to maemo? Is it a reasonable option to look at when replacing an n900.... or will I never upgrade?
