Convoluted family tree
Tizen has a convoluted pedigree: It’s the successor of three abandoned mobile OS projects -- most of them never even reached a final release stage. Overall, Tizen is a combination of Moblin, which was originally created by Intel, and Maemo, created by Nokia. It also re-uses technology from MeeGo, such as its network management. MeeGo, cancelled in September 2011, was originally started by Intel and Nokia.
