Tizen OS declared 'dead in the water'

<< < (2/2)

Tizen in your car:

Linux is nothing if not flexible. The open source operating system can be found on phones, servers and PCs throughout and beyond this world.

Now the OS is being manoeuvred to seize pole position in the car. Not only is Google planning to launch its Google Voice-controlled Android Auto in-car system – but this week saw the release of the in-vehicle infotainment system in the Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) stack.

AGL is built on top of Tizen In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) software, a version of the Tizen Linux-based phone OS modified to interact with in-vehicle electronics.

Having a (potentially) superior product, or being backed by a few big players is no guarantee you will have a chance against something that is already out there and works, or even just something cheaper or easier (think of VHS).

Never underestimate the gravity well generated by "good enough."

I forgot who said it (George Ade maybe?), but it still rings true in most manufacturing: "Half a loaf is better than one if there is much else."

Something to watch:

If that happens, Tizen will be mainstream.
