There is simply no room left for a third ecosystem. Apple and Android won.

So Intel finally found its partner for MeeGO after drop of Nokia. They tried partnership with ASUS but seems no success. Sad to hear drop of MeeGO but it was pretty clear fact. Why do we need more Linux OS, coz we dont have widely accepted version yet, due to nature of Linux everybody can create its own version. On the other hand with help of such giants as like Intel we finally can have this highly accepted version of Linux/unix

I'm not a software expert. Why do we still another Linux/Unix OS? Maybe none of the software house is large enough to influence chip vendors so they all diverge in different directions and finally there are so many different OS! We, as a consumer, has fed up with so many different OS. Please give me a simple enough and yet robust OS but not just too many to choose from!

To a large extent if we do sit back and wait for the smoke to clear then Tizen will probably disappear. We may not do the bulk of the application programming on these platforms, but we do select them for our platforms and write the device drivers and services that help them succeed. Any OS that doesn't grab the attention of we hard-core tech types usually is headed eventually for the dustbin. Larry M.

Dave, the more things change the more the continue to be the same. Lets allow the dust to settle, and the stronger OS survive the market place for the strenth alone, and hope that it is due their thechincal strength and not just for their smoke and mirrors shows.

Octop, LoL on your last line. I hope the same that Tizen does not get over-sold and over-promised then left to its demise.

It would be nice to see a few less OS's in the marketplace. Of course, with many of them linux based, moving from one to another is easier than it might otherwise be, but it is nevertheless not simple anymore. Larry is right that from the app developer point of view this is more in line with what is needed. Hmmm, maybe it's time to rethink career direction....

This may actually be a smart move on Intel's part (Gasp!). As embedded guys we see another OS, but from the point of view of application developers they just see another HTML5 platform. There are a lot more of 'them' in the world than there are 'us'. Larry M.

Well this is not so surprising and bound to happen after Nokia's abandonment. Intel do not want to support the software development and would want to stick to the hardware only.

Especially after Google's purchase of Motorola Mobility.
