PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Well, this was inevitable. After Samsung and Sony Ericsson abandoning Symbian for their line of smartphones, and after Symbian Foundation executive director Lee Williams leaving the company for "personal reasons", there's now a report that the Symbian Foundation is winding down its operations, in preparation for closing up shop entirely.

Agreed. My point is "please do not spend your resources on custom kernels like Symbian - concentrate in userspace".

What if kernel features, e.g. in the security area, have an influence on user experience ? Say, if I look at the number of vulnerabilities discovered on iOS and Android since their appearance and contrast with the vulnerabilities discovered in Symbian since they switched to their new security model, knowing that Symbian has been there longer...
