The inaugural Samsung Open-Source Conference opens Tuesday morning in Seoul, with keynotes from well-known figures in the open source world and a hackathon focused on Tizen, the company???s in-house mobile operating system. Samsung???s primary direct interest in the open-source world revolves around Tizen, a Linux-based mobile operating system that has functioned more as a bargaining chip in the OEM???s sometimes-fractious relationship with Google ??? which provides the Android OS used by almost all Samsung???s mobile devices ??? than as an operational mobile platform.
