Samsung doesn't need another OS dude, it's better with Android and Windows OS. Would you buy a phone based on an particular OS even after knowing that it will fail and abandoned? Most probably no.

If we are told Tizen is what we like, we will
show our support and like it with purchases.
But until then, we all are with Android and Samsung
Sales show Samsung is doing very well.
I think Samsung has been working on an Android-like OS with Intel all along, never mind the Tizen rumors. For months we've been hearing - and looking at benchmarks - of Intel-powered mobile devices, and there are Sammy ties (Galaxy Tab plus long relationship on laptop front). The Ativ Q's i5 running Android comes with no surprise either, I think they are onto something together.
Hello, Tizen OS is a result of merging Bada OS and some contribution from Intel, it would be a misconception to call Tizen the continuation of MeeGo OS. The UI on the leaked Samsung Tizen based device looks like those $10 Chinese phones and everything in it is actually based on Android 2.2 Froyo/Android 2.3 Gingerbread but the UI is ugly and besides that, there's nothing innovative about it and from the previous leaked Samsung Tizen based phone, it's clear that it would be a resource hungry OS, just like Android but with very little amount of applications. Sailfish OS is the continuation of MeeGo OS and it has a very different UI which in my opinion isn't bad at all and the Sailfish OS isn't resource hungry OS and there are many new innovative things in it. According to me, it will be the best OS amongst Firefox, Ubuntu, and Tizen OS. It's better to abandon the Tizen project before launching any devices based on it because it's not competitive enough and most probably will end up being a failure. Samsung is much better with Android.

I've seen some neat gesture based launcher activity from Ubuntu, but there are a few really "out-there"/neat launchers for Android that can be very gesture based too..and the new BB is similar (though a bit hairy in implementation). Otherwise, I haven't really seen anything too new from these yet. If you've seen something pretty cool yourself, I would love a link.
samsung future thinkers, well done ,after all samsung are leaders because of google
This isn't true. Tizen, firefox & sailfish is the future or mobile os. They can crash android or ios once they've arrive. They bring lots of new and innovative features that android and ios can't bring. Even the very good ubuntu mobile has taken over the pie charts for mobile os's. I cant wait and so excited for tizen os :)

What does Tizen have to offer over current OS's that's worth any excitement? I've seen and heard that it isn't particularly easy on resources/hardware, so I'm not sure what it could possibly have over android (unless it will get Flash support to extend its browsing capabilities beyond that of a phone circa-2006).

Tizen, BB10, Firefox, Sailfish, ubuntu, all these are zombie OS which cannot live a year or two.
WebOS on the other hand had and still has a lot of potential to be 4th major OS and can even kill Android in 25years if it can be opensource.
Anything thats built to be LIKE android will fail.
Anything thats built to differentiate from Android will live...
It is not a good idea to speculate unless there is an official statement from the korean headquarter of samsung
but Bada itself was a pretty good plateform(the wave3 had the best battery backup in class despite and was comparable in terms of hardware and overall performance with other devices in its class that included the s2 and iphone 4
beckon, 05 Jul 2013Have you?I have clue. As long as it's Samsung phone, it is good. Period.
