Google Fuschia To Run On Magenta Kernel Instead Of Linux
Fuschia, the brand new operating system of Goggle, is currently in the works with a promising Magenta Kernel. While rumors spread that this latest OS from Google might combine Android and Chrome OS into one, we dig deeper on Fuschia’s potential benefits and drawbacks.
The Fuchsia mission looks to be a promising OS but it's not going to replace Android anytime soon according to Android Central. Fuchsia is a new operating system developed by Travis Geiselbrecht (BeOS, iOS, and webOS) and Brian Swetland (Android, BeOS, and HiptopOS) as well as Google software engineer Petr Hosek.
Linux has powered Google hardware like Chrome OS and Android for years. However, the Linux kernel is not ideal for embedded devices like GPS units in automobiles and car dashboards as the utilization of the said kernel might result in some issues.
Similar to Linux, the Magenta kernel powers the larger Fuchsia operating system. Inquisitr reported that the Fuchsia OS has a kernel known as Magenta that has been designed to work on practically all compatible devices from a small embedded device to a desktop. Google Fuchsia also uses Google’s own Dart programming language and Flutter for the user interface to maintain Material design used by Android OS.
Though Fuchsia is working well on Next Unit of Computing (NUC) personal computers using Intel’s platforms, its driver support is still a work in progress, which signals that hardware like keyboards and mice might not be supported just yet.
Despite the overwhelming benefits Fuschia could offer, it is possible that this could just be another Google side project that may never hit reality, just like many others. This is another downside that we should anticipate.
