Why do I want it? Looks like Intel is repeating the Moblin mistake. Ultrabooks run any os laptops do, being x86 and all. So why would I, as a user, go with Tizen even if I did want Linux? Why wouldn't I go with Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian, or anything else much better supported that I'm likely to find packages for? Since it looks like Intel's moving away from Tizen's original goals and putting GNOME 3 in there, it's not as if it's going to run much lighter on resources than anything else based on that DE. What's the point of it?
