Fuchsia Is The Upcoming Operating System By Google
Google is secretly working on a new operating system which is called Fuchsia. No one knows what it is right now except that it is a pile of growing code at the moment. The project is being called Fuchsia. Although sources indicate that Fuchsia will have a couple of new features what the OS is intended for is unknown as of right now.
Right now, all that we know about Fuchsia is that Google is starting from scratch with this operating system and that it will be a fresh start for the company. This OS does not use Linux kernel. There have been a number of speculations and suggestions as to what this OS will be for. Some people believe that this will bring together Chrome OS and Android. Just like Windows 10. Others think that it could be used to power OnHub router or the Internet of Things.
Whatever the case is Fuchsia is scheduled to come out next year, sometime in 2017. Looking into the Fuchsia code, we see that the OS is built on Magenta. Magenta is more powerful than just powering a router. The documentation states:
“fast processors” and “non-trivial amounts of RAM.”
Magenta has a number of advanced features. Having that said, it is unlikely that Fuchsia will only be powering the router or the Internet of Things. I think that Google has something else in mind. It is likely that Google is planning to bring together Android and Chrome OS into one system. Windows 10 is streamlined across devices and it seems like Google is planning to do the same with their product range as well.
What does the GitHub page have to say about the operating system Google is working on? Here it is:
“Pink + Purple == Fuchsia (a new Operating System).”
What do you think about this new OS? How do you think it will be used when it comes out next year?
