Any thoughts on Tock? I happened upon it through Google's OpenCV using it on the nRF52840 dongle, but at first glance it looks viable for PineTime. 

On Microsoft, it's not so much that they're giving bad vibes at the moment, but that they built such a massive wall of distrust with their long history of anti-FOSS and anticompetitive behaviour, much of which wasn't immediately apparent. That wall will take a long time to dismantle, and any false move will reinforce the view that we're just in the 'embrace' phase with the 'extinguish' to follow.

Yes Tock looks really interesting... I wish somebody could port it to PineTime and show us how it really works. Because it's so different from everything else out there.

Amit, here, from the Tock project. There is a bit (meaning a few folks in the community) interested in doing this! We'll try to get something basic up and running and update here.

Meanwhile, if other folks are interested in contributing (particularly if they have more experience with PineTime), find us over on our Slack or mailing list (both listed on our community page)
