It's been no secret that Tizen, an upcoming alternative OS to incumbents iOS, Android and WP, has received some serious backing from South Korean giant Samsung. Intel's support of the new OS is also nothing to sneeze at, though at this point it's safe to say that it's Sammy that's doing most of the pushing.
Of course, Samsung is also in a position to benefit immensely, should Tizen manage to make headway in what is undoubtedly a ruthless industry. This, along with the above, have led to a situation that is not at all unlike Samsung – its Tizen builds look dangerously close to the TouchWiz Android that powers their numerous handsets.

Now that you've taken a peek, you're probably starting to grasp why this actually means more than it lets out. As we've touched on before, Samsung does appear quite serious about trying to make Tizen as ubiquitous as Android is.

But, one has to wonder exactly how Google is feeling about all of this, considering Samsung is its undisputed, biggest OEM partner.
