I wonder if any of you have had any experienceon the Tizen 1.0 SDK (aka Larkspur)? How good it is compared to other mobile SDKs?

Runs only on very limited number of platforms. :-( Has to be 32 bit, either Windows XP (!) or 3 versions of Ubuntu, closing with 11.10 (that's not the newest version, already 1 year old).
Not easy to install if you have a newer machine/operating system. Fortunately I had an older laptop where it could be installed with the usual amount of fiddling but if you have a newer PC/OS, you will be out of luck.

Works actually also on 64 bit Linux, in a chroot-ed environment:

Version 2.0 (Magnolia) works a lot better though:

It has actually become usable and provides a decent (even though still very slow) developer experience.
