On Friday officially ended the Google I / O 2017. During the event, Big G has introduced several new features including the second public beta version of Android O and light Android G but unfortunately the expectations of those who hoped to get more information Fuchsia on the new operating system have been dashed. The new project of Mountain View is a real mysterious object. Some thought could be the platform that would unite into one for desktop and mobile user experience but apparently will not. Today Dave Burke, VP of Engineering of Android, wanted to clarify some aspects related to Fuchsia in an interview.
Burke pointed out that the real new operating system strength lies in its open source nature that allows anyone for improvements. “Fuchsia is an experimental project still in its early stages. – said the engineer in Mountain View – As you know, we have initiated many good projects in Google. I think that to make it interesting, in this case, is its open source nature that allows anyone to view and comment on it. ” Burke has also confirmed that it will not replace Android Fuchsia and that the two operating systems will be developed independently of each other. “Like many other projects in their early stages, most likely it will change and will change. – he continued – There are some people who are working really good there, great professionals who have worked with us. So it will be interesting to see what will happen. However, it is a different project, and completely independent of Android. And that’s basically all. ”
Burke is not particularly unbalanced about Fuchsia but somehow has confirmed that it will be an ecosystem that is not going to compete with the dominance of Android in the mobile field. In many they thought that the OS-based Magenta kernel could be an alternative to green robot also in the light of the first images of its UI Armadillo but obviously it will not, at least for now. Fuchsia could then become a specific operating system for the Internet of Things like Android, Chrome OS, and Android Wear are respectively for the mobile, desktop and wearable devices.
