Samsung Electronics Co. said on Tuesday it planned to merge its
‘Bada’ mobile software with a platform backed by chipmaker

another by Intel, agreed to jointly develop Tizen, a new operating
system for cellphones and other devices, by merging their LiMo and
Meego platforms in a bid to gain wider industry and consumer

Samsung spokesman confirmed senior vice president Kang Tae-jin as
telling Forbes magazine in an interview last week.
Sure, that’ll work. Just take them and smoosh them together. It’s easy to merge operating systems.
