We love our operator freedom and won't give up our pre-pay.
Nice digression. Google's monopoly was the subject iirc. Anyway, this is my last post. Have a nice day.

You were the one that brought up the subject.

I clearly mentioned three operating systems in my first post.

What is the advantage over Android, iOS and Windows systems related to games?


Then you mentioned Tizen is good in areas where Android and Windows are already used, among other Linux distributions that I failed to mention actually.

If you cannot deal with the fact that Android is no monopoly by what the law defines as such, that is your problem not mine.

By the same rule, of course mobile operators are pissed off by losing control to consumers via iOS and Android devices. Again their problem, not mine. Still no monopoly by what the law defines as such.

Also my last post. I am happy we agree to disagree.

When making any sort of pragmatic argument, the ideological refuse to accept its merit and usually try to change the focus.

It is very frustrating.

He made the mistake of commenting on an unrelated manner which allowed you to claim he was changing the subject while you ignored the first part where he was on topic.

The unanswered question remains, why would anyone choose Tizen over the other Linux distros?

The only reasons I can think of:

You want to stay close to Samsung's product line.
Personal preference.
You think it will be more popular in the mobile sector than the others focusing there ( jolla, firefox, ubuntu).

All you needed to do was to pick one of those and this conversation would have been a lot more productive of a discussion.
