    Re: News - MeeGo + LiMo = Tizen

    As a day to day user of the KDE desktop one of the key things that made nokia/meego interesting was its use and promotion of QT, if Tizen doesn’t use that then it lessens my interest in exactly the same way as Nokia downplaying “linux” in its QT marketed handsets.

    I also doubt the capability of Tizen to be anything more than still-born if it doesn’t use a decent mobile focussed UI toolkit like Qt.

    I have seen too many of these mobile linux partnerships come and go to no real effect, at the end of the day nokia is on its fifth generation of mobile linux products, that is at least a real track record to place some trust in.

    I’m all for meego being folded into Tizen, and wishing it every success, but without nokia and Qt i remain sceptical, and quite happy to continue with an N9 for the next couple of years.

    Re: News - MeeGo + LiMo = Tizen

    I used MeeGo on my netbook - dual-booting with Ubuntu - and I've got to say that I was actually quite impressed. On the (Atom-powered) netbook it not only booted faster than any other distro I tried on the same hardware, but also felt a heck of a lot snappier in use - even against the most modern Ubuntu.

    The only issue I had with it was around applying updates - especially with the "enhanced" release that included Chrome - where it was a lottery whether the update worked, or failed with one of a variety of strange error messages. Can't help thinking that this wouldn't have been an issue if they'd gone with real rpm/yum or deb's, rather than this "zypper" nonsense.

    Much as I'd like to see it continue - e.g. for netbooks, or even better for low-cost tablets - I think this latest announcement is yet another step towards the grave.

    How are we supposed to pronounce "Tizen"? I am compelled to look at it with a German slant, effectively putting a 't' before the 'z'.

    TITZEN!
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    What, as in "it's now all titzen up!"

    According to the podcasts I've listened to it's TeeZen.
