Samsung has this week announced it has ported the Tizen 3.0 OS to Raspberry Pi enabling those interested and equipped with the right tools to be able to create their own versions of the operating system for the awesome mini PC.

A full-fledged Tizen operating system is available for the Raspberry Pi. For more information on the new Tizen 3.0 OS to Raspberry Pi jump over to the official Samsung Tizen website.
