I guess that's a typo and you mean Tizen. Problem is, that Samsung can't just say "ok, we stop Tizen and redo everything with WebOS" for a few reason, the most obvious being: a restart costs a lot and a lot has already been invested in Tizen.

On a private note: after having used a Samsung Galaxy S3 for 18 months I am happy, that WebOS is not in the hands of this moloch who builds crappy hardware with even crappier Android-addons. I can't count the problems I had, but "Touchwiz wurde angehalten" (german errormessage, when Touchwiz crashed) was a daily attraction of this phone.
Same profile with same apps on a Nexus 5: no probs at all and the batterylife is more than double ...
Yes, I am happy, that LG has WebOS.
