Fuchsia is not Linux
« on: April 13, 2018, 05:56:28 pm »
OSNews just published that Google's Fuchsia OS now have a more organized documentation:
https://fuchsia.googlesource.com/docs/+/master/the-book/

It is kind of interesting to see some OS that is not based in Linux and it that is not a Monolithic kernel.

For people like to have more deep knowledge of an OS, it may be interesting to read more about Zircon, the kernel of this OS. It is open source under the BSD 3 clause, MIT, Apache 2.0 licenses. It is not clear yet what Google is going to do with this OS.

I thought they planned on using it for Android, at least if they can get it working good enough.

There was the rumor that they planned to integrated ChromeOS and Android in a single microkernel, but it was never confirmed.... or deny :)
