if there is something that we can highlight with ease of Google is that sometimes their projects seem to compete with each other, but it is not a strategic mistake, but quite the opposite. In the specific case of the operating systems, the success of Android is compelling and numbers of Chrome OS are still up, however, there is a project in the background that could replace them both. His code name is Fuchsia and although technically has profile open source, is not based on Linux.
Android loaded with several problems, but the most critical of these is the absence of a solid platform to deliver updates to your users. Once the patches arrive to the code, everything depends on OEMs and service providers, who do not show any interest in supporting devices beyond its essential commitments. This and other deficiencies have dragged along with the operating system for years, which installs a very interesting question: would would like Android if Google could develop it from scratch, in 2017 with all your current knowledge? The answer is Fuchsia .
the first details about this mysterious operating system emerged in August of 2016 as a simple command line. Today, Fuchsia has a much more elaborate interface idea (bautizada «Armadillo») with a dedicated tablet, mode split-screens, panels of suggestions. For now it is not much more than a skeleton, and the really interesting operating system passes through the low level. In simple terms, Fuchsia discards to the Linux kernel and the use of the GPL license in favour of an internal microkernel called Magenta, and a combination of Apache 2.0, MIT and BSD licenses (3-Clause) . Another thing that is on the road is everything «legacy» related to Java. The interface is made with the SDK of Flutter, and Dart-based apps .
lack a week for the Google I/O 2017 Edition. The ideal would be if the company decides to there share more data on Fuchsia but something tells me that this will not be the case (espero equivocar_me) . Fuchsia has all the characteristics of a very long-term project, and that «distance» may be necessary to develop a stable transition of Android and Chrome OS to the new system.
