Google is working on a new operating system, codenamed ‘Fuchsia’




Google is working on an operating system that the company’s code name ‘Fuchsia’ yields. The OS is built from the ground up and seems intended for both smartphones and PCs and other form factors. The Internet giant itself has not yet given publicity to the system.

That writes Phoronix based on a GIT repository of Google. The Principals ‘fuchsia’ shows only the phrase “Pink + Purple Fuchsia == (a new Operating System)” view, or “pink + purple == Fuchsia, a new operating system.”

Fuchsia is built around Magenta and LK, or Little Kernel. Magenta is built in on LK, but the layers above are new. The developers writing about “Magenta has the concept of a process, but not an LK Magenta Process is composed of LK level constructs such as threads and memory..

What is further exactly the target with the system, it is not yet clear. So it is not known whether Google actually this is to develop a completely new operating system that will use or deliver the company. If language is used Dart, a language that the company several years ago developed and the framework concerns Mojo.

The licenses are used Apache 2.0 and MIT. These licenses make it easier for developers to create closed source products for the OS, something difficult with GNU Public License.
