Potential Samsung OS substitutes

Attention !!!
This might be one of the most off-topic questions, but why cannot we try to implement Symbian, iOS, Bada OS, or Windows Mobile unto Samsung Jet?

Symbian --- is it not Java based, presumably easier to mod ???
iOS --- I do not know what is it, but I think linux based, so can we try that -- I am not an Apple lover, but still.
Bada OS --- have no clue --- but looks good on Wave
Windows Mobile --- it might be easy because there many early smartphones that came with WM 5 or 6.

This question was asked on DarkForestGroup by somebody else, but no comprehensive answer was submitted.

What do you think guys? I just hope to get some info with ideas... :)

Just my opinion but,...
Symbian --- old OS thats going noware. afaik its primarily Nokia that use this but are now moving over to WM for future dev
iOS ---swear word + we have no other phones using similar hardware running this OS
Bada OS --- is just as limiting as current Jet os + Touchwiz2
Windows Mobile ---well,maybe, isnt GT-i8000 WM native?. but many GT-i8000 users are trying to port to android (o2droid)

yeah, I think IGT-8000 is WM native...
For the iOS part, how about the iOS clone like the one ported to HTC EVO ?

There are many video on youtube about installing Windows phone 7 for HTC HD2. But I still wonder and look for what does WP7 base on :?: Windows Mobile or somewhat ? Anyone knows this

WM7 is Windows Mobile 7 just like the one introduced for the PCs...
I wonder whether it would be worthwhile to look into the clone iOS -- the ones Chinese make for the cloned Iphones... Some products are good and use variety of hardware. :P

How hard is it to port WM 6 from Omnia II to Jet? Is there a requirement for the same type firmware, or can it be ported onto SDHC card?

Just found a link with the Chinese clone of Apple's Iphone, it has the same chipset as our Jet, and runs Android and WM... What do you say?

Here are the series of the phones that use exactly the same processor and the same amount of RAM (256 Mb as posted by Dopi) as Samsung Jet.

What do you say, these phones are all running WM 6.5
