I don’t understand this at all!
1) Why not just buy webOS, for god’s sake?
2) It’s a pack of losers banding together! It reminds me of this comic book:
I mean, ACCESS is in there! ACCESS bought PalmSource, failed to get its ACCESS Linux Platform on any devices, pivoted to try to use it for electronic publishing, disastrously failed at that, and now has decided to join this team to save its failed investment?!
None of this makes any sense at all!
How the hell do you even pronounce “Tizen”?
Is it “TEES-in’” (as in, “Just teasin’!”)
Is it “TIZ-zen” (as in, ci”tizen”)?
Is it “TIE-zin” (as in, “ties-in”)?
Is it “tih-ZEN” (as in WTF, maybe Klingonese?)?
Why do these wannabes all come up with screwball names? Maemo, LiMO, MeeGo, now Tizen?!
If you can’t come up with a compelling and easy to say brand name, you’ve already failed!
Everyone single member of this group is going to be fighting for its own piece of cheese too. They’ll want to make their bit of it somehow “special” to gain an edge over the others.
What’s that old saw about committees?
And what’s the prevailing wisdom about anything designed by committee?
And they already had some great marketable imagery:
And now they will throw that away too?
This will be as successful as the original Inferior Five.
Someone really needs to buy webOS now to wipe this out.
