Samsung and good UI design are normally not spoken of together. But if the newly-released Tizen screenshots are anything to go by, it seems there is someone at the company taking interface design seriously. The Tizen project has released its 2.0 Magnolia SDK in a bid to invite developers and early adopters to try out the OS, report bugs and build apps for the project. Tizen began life as Meego and was featured in the Nokia N9, but since then Samsung has taken over the development reigns of the open source OS, overseen by the Linux Foundation. Tizen is positioned as very developer friendly and in a time when more and more open source mobile platforms are entering the market, it will be a major contender thanks to the backing of Samsung. Those eager to try out the Linux-based OS can download the SDK and source code of Tizen 2.0 Magnolia from the developer site. The new version introduces many new features and improves the previous iterations of the OS, Tizen 1.0 Larkspur and the Alpha build of Magnolia.
