Back in the days of Mac OS X 10.2-10.4, I toyed with backporting some of my programming projects, originally developed in Carbon with Project Builder, to MacOS 9, and downloaded MPW (since it was free, and CodeWarrior was not) to do so.

Following delays of over a year, Samsung finally shipped its first Tizen-powered handset, the Z1, earlier this month in India.
