LiPS and LiMo Mobile Linux Groups Join Forces

“Looks like there’s only room for one mobile Linux standards body in these here parts, and LiMo’s recent momentum and partnership deals have apparently swept up the members of the Linux Phone Standards (LiPS) — the two groups just announced that as of July, LiPS will be folded into LiMo”, reports Engadget. This piece of news, with the recent Nokia/Symbian news too, prompted me to write this opinion piece that I had on the back of mind for a while now, where I offer an analogy as to how today’s smartphone OSes compare to the 1985 personal computer OS climate and where does this may lead.
