Tizen Operating System
Tizen is a Linux-based operating system for devices including smartphones, tablets, in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) devices, smart TVs and smart cameras. Its licensing model involves software using a variety of open source licenses which may be incompatible[clarification needed], along with a proprietary SDK. It aims to offer a consistent user experience across devices. The Tizen project resides within the Linux Foundation and is governed by a Technical Steering Group (TSG) composed of Samsung and Intel[citation needed]. The Tizen Association has been formed to guide the industry role of Tizen, including gathering of requirements, identification and facilitation of service models, and overall industry marketing and education.Members of the Tizen Association represent every major sector of the mobility industry and every region of the world.

Current members include operators, OEMs and computing leaders: Fujitsu, Huawei, Intel Corporation, KT, NEC CASIO Mobile Communications, NTT DOCOMO, Orange, Panasonic Mobile Communications, Samsung, SK Telecom, Sprint and Vodafone. While the Tizen Association decides what needs to be done in Tizen, the Technical Steering Group determines what code is actually incorporated into the operating system to accomplish those goals. Tizen roots back to the Samsung Linux Platform (SLP) and the LiMo Project and recently, Samsung merged its homegrown Bada project into Tizen. Intel put some of its MeeGo work into Tizen.
