PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Lukas Mathis touts many webOS features that he wants other vendors to steal. All this stuff just makes me more sad I never got to try webOS on anything because nobody gives a rat's bum about The Netherlands. WebOS never came to market here. Especially its multitasking with cards looks so much more elegant than the horrible "multi"tasking implementations on Android and iOS. Hopeful note: Matias Duarte now heads the UX team for Android.

Two excellent OSes screwed over by politics. Now I'm sad

Intel stopped working with Nokia on Maemo.

So Intel and Samsung are now working together on Tizen on the Linux International flag.

Samsung seems to be working on a eventual replacement for Bada.

Samsung wasn't happy with the performance of GTK and QT, they've already employed "Rasterman" of Enlightenment years ago.

So EFL is the base for the UI for Tizen. Certain code will come from Maemo.

The native applications are thus build around EFL, others will be HTML5-based.

Samsung will make it easy to make the Bada apps availabe on Tizen.
