    At first glance it looks like it consists mostly of Samsung's SLP, with very little MeeGo to be found anywhere.

    Well, time for a "a little less vaporware" article now

    It looks like Samsung is actually going to use Tizen:
    Open-source smartphone OS Tizen rose like a scorched pigeon from the ashes of MeeGo last September, but its taken until now for the first screenshots of the…

    Shortly after they announced the tizen crapoware thing, intel announced support for ANDROID. They are/have given up the idea of partnering with some other entity to develop something that HAS ALREADY BEEN DONE. Tizen isn't going anywhere. There is nothing IN IT for intel -- or anybody else except those who came up with tizen to start with. Might as well accept THE dominant open source platform and play nice already. That's all Intel **CAN** do, otherwise their hardware will fade away into irrelevance.

    gtkmm has c++ bindings. gtk+ is still C. gtk is dunno, perhaps sth totally different.

    Exactly. No one believes in Tizen, not even the Linux Foundation. I'm not even sure why did they decide to kill Meego. There is something that is not convincing me in this story. Sounds like its all a big fat bullshit vaporware. I'm very disappointed from the Meego story.

    Software is in a way cheaper to make and when linus started all the important pieces needed to make it possible were there. Hardware on the other hand needs money for prototypes test facilities/instruments etc etc.

    We cannot make open HW unless someone see an opportunity and put money in it. Personally i believe that there is place in the market for a HW manufacturer that will base his products around open software (ie no system 76 oem crap). If the products are thoroughly designed (aesthetically and engineering wise) can even attract customers from other companies too.
