Tizen holds the promise on shipping on lots of different devices. Samsung has already been shipping the Samsung NX-300M Camera for the last month or so but Today at the Tizen Developer Summit, Samsung has officially announced that this camera is actually running Tizen!

So, Tizen is now shipping... On a camera. On a related note, Samsung has let out some details of Tizen 3.0, planned for next year. It's going 64bit, will gain multiuser support, and will switch from X to Wayland.

Samsung NX-300M Camera [...] is actually running Tizen [...] Tizen 3.0, planned for next year [...] will switch from X to Wayland.

So if my transitive reasoning is correct, that camera with the current version of Tizen actually has Xorg running on it??? Wow. Just wow.

This is nothing to be amazed, X servers for embedded POSIX OSs exist even before Linus thought about creating Linux.

I think he is more amazed about the overhead Samsung was ready to accept.

The meego phone Nokia N9 had Xorg too. Interestingly it had a smoother UI than most Android phones at that time.
