Google's New Mobile OS Will Have a Distinctly Non-Linux Hue
17 May 2017, 12:48 am



Google has been developing a new open source OS called "Fuchsia" for smartphones, tablets and other devices, which could be unveiled as early as this summer. Little has been revealed about the new OS since it first came to light last year. However, new details that surfaced last week have been making the rounds. Fuchsia apparently will move Google away from its long association with Linux, as it is based on a new microkernel called "Magenta." Google plans to dump not only the Linux kernel, but also the General Public License, it appears.
