Google is currently secretly developing a new cross-platform operating system dubbed Fuchsia OS which abandons the underlying Linux and uses its own kernel. In addition to Android and Chrome OS, Google also launched an operating system project called Fuchsia OS. The system is ready to run on Pixelbook, a 2-in-1 laptop platform powered by 7th Gen. Intel Core processors.
The process of installing Fuchsia OS is somewhat unique. First, the boot file will be placed on a USB device, and it will boot into the Zedboot interface. Then download a file of about 1.1 GB. The system can switch between tablet/notebook mode and phone mode by clicking the bubble in the upper left corner. Note that this is not a set of Linux-based systems, but Magenta (or Zircon), Google’s own microkernel.
Keyboard and mouse, touch screen, USB, battery power display, etc. are all available in this system, but Wi-Fi cannot be used, but this can be solved by a USB cable. Therefore, you can log in to the website (Currently Google only). The application’s presentation is also different from the current desktop icons and must be manually searched.
The touchscreen optimization is good, support multiple tasks, split screen, drag and so on. However, the Fuchsia OS is still in the development stage, and there is still a long way to go for it to be on par with Windows or Android.
