EDIT: the OS running on the NX300 seems to be some LINUX version as it displays some license terms for OpenSource so its most likely Tizen running on it as suspected.

NX300 is running on TizenOS (linux core) with Exynos 4412 (quad core) which is used for Galaxy S3.

If you are interested, you can download NX300 firmware from Samsung website and open it with Hex-editor such as Hexplorer. You can easily find "tizen" or "MDK4412".

And, don't worry about boot-up time. One of NX300 user reported start up time is around 1 sec.

Excellent, thanks.  I suppose it is because the Galaxy Camera is running Android, and whatever minimal linux kernel the NX300 uses takes much less time to start?

I guess NX300 has different boot-up method from Android OS. NX300 uses a kind of snap shot method. The boot is not like conventional "booting". Instead of "booting", the method just dumps stored memory snap shot to run-time memory.

That's why the boot sequence is so quick. The explanation might not be accurate enough.

The bottom line is that you don't need to worry about "booting delay".
