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.

Checkout the Tizen-Associate http://www.tizenassociation.org/en/

There are backing from some major corporations, but at the moment, major push is into Android. Though, if there is going to be a real device, it would properly come into Asia market first.

I would discount Tizen so soon yet.

I know they are backed. Meego was also backed, and devices never came (besides N9 effort). So as I said - until devices will starting coming, this won't help much.
