Tizen runs Android apps by ACL; as I heard.

Please give us one huge upgrade - simple QWERTY. Last QWERTY phone is N900 from 2009. The next will be Jolla+TOHKBD in 2015 just thanks to a community funding effort (but still with weak hardware from 2013). Everybody in forums wants QWERTY but no single manufacturer makes one.
Interesting both QWERTY phones also run Linux OS (that is not Android) despite both features are technically completely unrelated. And there are very few non-QWERTY Linux OS phones.
Maybe there is some need for extension (although I have never found it) but in that case - systemd is still too buggy to be deployed in a real OS. After any upgrade/update I am dealing with daemons refusing to start, system upgrade takes _whole_night_ because systemd crashed on an assert - on each host upgraded etc. etc.
It is similar to pulseaudio, since that time I had to learn all the options of audio software how to deal with silent audio which always worked before pulseaudio deployment.
