tizen... some people are waiting for an OS full of 1.0 bugs that will be useful in around 4 years from now, just to tell others that they switched to tizen because android 4.1 is laggy and buggy... mehhhhhhhhh

tizen = bada because samsung = samsung

i don't hate myself enough to believe in everything marketing wants me to believe in. specialy when it comes from samsung.

One good thing about Bada is it is very power efficient.

Everyone have to avoid all the new OSes and make Android and iOS(if you want competition) better by using it. As we're using it, it means devs will bring all games and apps to your platform of choice.

Now with iOS and Android and may be Windows Phones, we already have a reasonable competitors here. Adding more to it and it'll become fragmentation.

Samsung(a company wich I don't quite like) is retiring Bada because now is focusing on Tizen(with Intel that Nokia kicked off and abandoned Meego) and BADA apps will be compatible on Tizen. Nokia retired Symbian and Symbian Apps(pressuming they are any quality ones over there) are backward compatible with nothing because Nokia is not working on anything instead because they have all the eggs in one WP basket. :)

I hope Tizen adopt something like the two step verification system which will be on most websites in the future.
