And you think Tizen/Samsung will be will be any different then Android/Google?? Samsung will advertise it as open then if it gets any traction it will be locked down even tighter than Android! Samsung has no love of OSS. At least Google acts like they GAS even if in reality they don't!

Samsung is aiming for an ecosystem the likes of iOS. The problem is that they don't have the following to drive a closed ecosystem.

and you think samsung will be the only one shipping it? i'll buy phone which fits in one of these 2 conditions
- is open
- i can change firmware with tizen variation of my choice (same as people now use cyanogenmod, just having damn lots more options)
at least the second condition will show up really fast
