Google working on a new Operating System, Fuchsia

Google’s new operating system “Fuchsia” is in a development stage and the early results are available on Github. The new OS is different from Android and Chrome because it doesn’t run on a Linux kernel. The core code for the Fuchsia OS is something called Magenta,  a "medium-sized microkernel" that is itself based on a project called LittleKernel. Magenta might help in making the OS run on embedded systems like fixed-purpose Internet of Things connected devices. Google in its documentation has provided some important features of Magenta Kernel. The documentation says that the software targets modern phones and modern personal computers using fast processors and a non-trivial amount of RAM. Apart from that Magenta has some noticeably advanced features like user-mode support and capability-based security model. Till now Google has not come up any official statement about Fuchsia Operating System and what is it for? But there are so many speculations in the air. The only real description of this Google Fuchsia OS is what it says at the top of the GitHub page: “Pink + Purple == Fuchsia (a new Operating System)”. Project Fuchsia is currently existing as a growing pile of code on the search giant’s code depository and on GitHub, too. Well, it is pretty clear that Fuchsia has got the beginning , but where it goes next is not clear. Currently, Fuchsia is being tested on all sorts of systems and soon we will get to know more about it.
