Bob, Sergey,

I was wondering what Tizen had that was so different from other Linux
distributions; I guess we now have an answer: not much!

Of course, this is x86 and Bob is—AFAICT—interested in ARM, but I don't
expect major problems there either as Tizen seems to be a bona fide
glibc/RPM platform, unlike Android.

Cheers, -D
