PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless For most of you, Samsung's Bada will be a bit of a mystery. As far as I know, it isn't sold in the United States, and Samsung isn't pushing it very hard in Europe either. Still, it has a 2% market share, and since my brother has a Bada phone, I can confirm it is a surprisingly good, fast, and easy to use smartphone operating system. Still, Samsung seems to have greater plans for it than just this 2%, since it has announced it will merge Bada with Tizen, the successor to MeeGo.

Tizen uses Xorg, that's for sure:

So if Bada is going to merge in, Xorg would stay. I just wonder why it's not Wayland yet.

Well, ultimately, what Tizen uses is the browser... ;p so Bada (& rough equivalent of X/Wayland in Bada) could wrap it, I suppose (yeah, it seems Enlightenment libs are also/already there; but then, supposedly Bada builds on them, too)

What I'm mostly saying: better don't keep your hopes too high (say: don't preclude Samsung essentially dropping the whole thing - at least as far as "community" and its desires go - in a year or so; or this new effort not going far, like its previous incarnations in which Samsung was IIRC also involved)
