Google is working on a new operating system called Fuchsia. AndroidPolice found the project on Gtihub with the description “Pink + Purple == Fuchsia (a new Operating System).” The OS is being built on the Magenta kernel, the first Google operating system not based on Linux. Magenta is derived from LittleKernel, a project aimed at Internet of Things and embedded OS devices. But, AndroidPolice found documentation that suggests it could be scaled up for smartphones and even desktop computers. That could make it an eventual replacement for Android and Chrome OS. It will definitely be interesting to see what Google does with Fuchsia.

    Honestly, the only things I care about regarding google are a) that they are the biggest crooks since 90s era Microsoft, and b) that the United States federal government is complicit in whatever it is that they want to do. Eric Schmidt is a troll, and nothing that google does is in the best interests of anyone. That America has lapped it all up is downright spooky. :/ Fuschia, turquoise, lavender, alphabet . . . who gives a sh*t? It’s still google.
