From a developer perspective, I'm interested in advance of conventional Linux on mobile (not Android, but X/Wayland based). What prevents it at present is severe lack of devices (or you can say drivers/open kernels). Such cases as N9 and upcoming Vivaldi/C71 are rare exceptions so far. Whatever flavor the OS will be wrapped in (Tizen, Mer etc.), if devices will be open allowing easy swapping of the mobile distros and drivers would be possible to update - it's already great for developers. That's why I'm not so excited about Tizen updates, since nothing was said about devices coming. However Vivaldi progress are really good news.
