That's not so interesting yet. When first open (hackable) devices with Tizen will arrive - that would be something to celebrate. So far it's rather vaporware, without devices.

Yeah, I have to agree. The SDK has some nice points, but the emulator feels clunky. Given that it's based on HTML5 tech, I naturally think of webOS and Enyo -- which are far more mature than Tizen.

My point was, whatever the software - without devices, it's not going do much. And if the system will push open devices to the market (where one could easily install alternative distros like Mer/Nemo/Plasma Active etc). it'll naturally help Linux advancement on the mobile.
