Linux "Intel and Samsung are now confirmed to be working under the umbrella of the Linux Foundation, and with the cooperation of the Limo Foundation, on 'Tizen', a new mobile operating system based on Linux. Various rumours about the parties' future plans for MeeGo and merging of plans have been in circulation, but the announcement of a new operating system was unexpected. The Tizen operating system will combine components of MeeGo and Limo with an emphasis on supporting HTML5-based applications and WAC (Wholesale Applications Community) distribution and APIs. WAC is the product of a number of mobile companies who have developed a uniform platform for mobile widgets and applications based on W3C standards."

I believe that we have too many right now. I think WebOS will die, Tablet OS will die, too and Bada might die. Symbian and Meego are already dead. Waste of time and resources.

If there's any of current mobile oses that experiences super growth it is Bada. It's the only smarphone os (besides deprecated symbian) that addresses battery life problem appropriately.
