No, not really. I see it more a case of going from a good developer experience with Maemo to a good but different one with MeeGo, and then to a shitty one with Tizen. It's hard to build excitement about a platform where you're forcing developers down a route that doesn't make sense. Seriously. I have no interest in developing for a platform like that. HTML5 gives much hope for the web. But a mobile device is not the web, and trying to pretend it is because it's buzzword compliant is a terrible decision. You had two chances, and got it nearly right on both of them. You got it very wrong with the third one, and I'm not going to waste my time on it.
