A source working at Intel has tipped Ars with several early screenshots and some video of Intel's Obsidian project, which includes a handful of unique UI touches."

Tizen is yet to make any impact on the market and they keep changing the OS foundations.

Any wonder this isn't going anywhere?

A UI is an OS foundation ? That's a new concept, for sure.
Intel is not going to sell phones btw, so its probably a prototype UI for Android/Tizen.

It is a foundation for everyone that builds applications on top of it.

Ever heard of OS UI design guidelines and UI APIs?
