Fuchsia: Google tinkers on new operating system




Fuchsia: The name sounds more like a character from a fable than for something that could have come from the house of Google. Nevertheless, Fuchsia (also a plant name) of almost cute sounding codename of a new operating system on which Google tinkers currently . Involved are among others former developer of BeOS, iOS and webOS. Also Fuchsia will be open source. What Google wants to do with the OS, but is still completely open. Because the question is, where could be positioned Fuchsia between Android and Chrome OS makes sense? Possibly it concerns with Fuchsia but only a research project.

From some information showing that Fuchsia can work with two different kernels. The base LK is designed for embedded systems, while magenta with more features to mobile devices but could judge also PCs. For the surface is to be used currently Flutter. Flutter is an open source project, its developers Google has already taken over, 2013. The preferred programming language for Fuchsia is Darts.

Google also working on a project called Escher, which render the surface and both OpenGL and volcano as APIs for graphics set. There are even already own application framework for Fuchsia – with bindings for Go, Java, Javascript, Python and Rust. While Google Fuchsia itself already lists Git in Google , the company has published but otherwise still no comments on the operating system.

As I said, therefore, remains whether Google experimented with Fuchsia primarily or larger in store for the OS. It is an open question whether we learn more in the foreseeable future. My assumption is rather that Google is experimenting here – I think it is unlikely that Google, at least for private customers, even an operating system introduces. Rather, I would imagine that fuchsia will develop some form specifically for business users. General can speculate based on the current information situation but only wild.
