Google is working on a new operating system. The name is Fuchsia. Rumor has it that it will power the next set of smartphones, and laptop computers. The OnHub router, Raspberry Pi 3 and other IoT (Internet of Things) devices will be powered by this new operating system.
We learnt that this software doesn’t use the Linux kernel like Android OS and Chrome OS do. The software is very lightweight. It also needs very little system resources to run – more or less like software found in a digital watch. The new software is open-sourced on GitHub here, with a tag, “Pink + Purple == Fuchsia (a new Operating System).”
So far Google has yet to release any official statement on this. Meanwhile, you can find the Git repositories on fuchsia here.
