no. bada is a middleware layer. it is only built on top of a minimal rtos - the
kind used in featurephones. it is not based on linux - even the kernel, nor
related to linux. its has a tiny rtos. if u love rtos stuff it may be of
interest to you. but for those of us who like linux because it brings the
wealth of posix, x11, dbus, blah blah blah ... and all the other linuxy bits,
software, infrastructure, support etc. then its pretty uninteresting.
