PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Huge swathes of the interface are remarkable only by their familiarity: a home screen with a grid of apps; a single navigation button to take you back to this screen or alternatively to a multi-tasking screen by way of a long press; and a top-to-bottom pull-down for notifications and quick access to settings. It's basic, but it represents pretty much what all these new operating systems are supposed to be: ways of getting functionality that is at least close to Android but without all the licensing costs associated with running Google services." A lobotomised iOS/Android mashup. This is completely void of personality. Still, it looks like this is Samsung's future (guess who was wrong).

Btw, I tried to make a submission about released Sailfish SDK. Did it go through at all?


Exactly why did you do that.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mer_%28operating_system%29

Upstream project of the Sailfish OS. Also can be an downstream from tizen.

Yes write once built many run on Sailfish OS and Tizen and others as native code.

Yes its going to get more confusing as all these Linux relations start appearing.

Tizen can become a Mer derivative if they are wise.
