Fuschsia: Google May be Up to Something New

It seems that Google is up to something new. Hackers and experts have found that the company is building an entirely new operating system. Interestingly, the new operating system is not based on Android, Linux Kernel or similar platforms. As such, industry analysts are speculating that the new operating system can be for a number of things. As for now, the unofficial name is Fuschsia.

According to the source, Android Police, that revealed the existence of the new operating system, the purpose may be to secure computing resources from traditional low-powered software that Android and Kernel cannot handle. Despite the fact that so-called Fuschsia is in an early development stage, analysts from Android Police are speculating that it will serve to bridge the gap between modern and standard computing systems. Doing so, will allow Google to integrate both old and new technologies. While viewing its documentation, Android Police also claimed that the new operating system is not restricted to certain computing devices. Instead, the development will definitely make it feasible to design it for mobile devices, embedded devices and desktop computers.

Still, there are contrasting views from Hackers News, who see the development as an answer to handle low latency rendering in operating systems. Because existing systems are not well-equipped for 3D environments you can walk around inside, therefore the platform is designed to serve as a predictable GUI that can handle future 3D capabilities of modern devices.

Yet another possibility explored by technical experts is the use of Fuschsia for bridging the gap and replace the existing operating systems of Google. For instance, Google uses Android and Chrome OS for mobile and laptops; however, Fuschsia will provide features to both these system. Regarding the two Google platforms, it seems that Google would want to replace the existing structure of platforms with their newer version.

Amid the debate, it is also well-known that Google does not publicly talks about its products that are in the development stage. If the product is not community-sourced, it is likely that Google will like to keep it a secret. In the past, many such commercial projects were never started by Google. On the other hand, it is also true that a number of similar developments were instrumental to the success of Google. At this time, the only thing that the community can do is to speculate and find more documentation.
