After reding this article, my belief on learning and researching Embedded Linux is stronger. Hope the Tizen project could complete successfully and give certain pressure to Android.

I second that opinion although I am not sure about the timeline.

Google's purchase of Motorola Mobility. I said at the time that they have made a mistake IMHO and I have not changed my mind. They offered their rivals an opportunity they could not dream of to compete with them on their own turf! As for the PC/Mobile analogy, I believe the mobile market has yet to mature and there is still a window of opportunity for competing OSes.

Is this also partly an attempt by the old guard, represented by LiMo and Linux Foundations to curtail the success of Google, by providing an alternative that can take market share. For a long time the telecommunicaions giants fought to keep Wintel out of phones. It just seems that in the case of Google the IT and communications giants may be trying to shut the stable door after the horse is off and running and half-way across the next county.

Maybe they're referring to cost per platform in a cross-platform utilization?

I would like to understand the code footprint size differences and the performance differences between Tizen and Android. Does anyone know? I also wonder how full figured an OS Tizen will be...

"The Tizen project promises to lower device realization cost" I'm curious what the bases of this is compared to Android.

The reason all this is happening is because companies need to distinguish themselves. Following along doesn't show you're a leader. So what you do is provide distractions with slightly different concepts.....just enough to keep everybody confused and scrambling and thinking you're the next greatest thing. If it fails, then just invent something else.

I believe that the future will be a hybrid. Apps still run on OS, hence the "OS" still matter. The future should be Apps over OS (or runtime) and Apps over browser.

I think each OS has it's flavor. Depending on this are the adopters. Tizen sounds a little Asian and 'steely'... Android is very Google-ish. get the idea?
