Google is working on a new OS called Fuchsia

Google is working on a new OS called Fuchsia: not derived from the Linux kernel.

Google is building a completely new operating system. 



As in, not just an upgrade to Android or Chrome OS, but instead, a new system that’s not derived from the Linux kernel.

The system use a Magenta Kernel base on LittleKernel (LK).
LK is a Kernel designed for small systems typically used in embedded applications.

"LK (Little Kernel) is a tiny operating system suited for small embedded devices, bootloaders, and other environments where OS primitives like threads, mutexes, and timers, but there’s a desire to keep things small and lightweight. On embedded ARM platforms the core of LK is typically 15-20 KB."

Magenta targets modern phones and modern personal computers with fast processors, non-trivial amounts of ram with arbitrary peripherals doing open ended computation.

As usual, it is open source project.

I 'm anxious to know with which language we will develop on it : they will keep community and use swift or java? or they will invent a more simple and robust language that can suppress all existing programming languages?  
The mobile world is changing, we assist to a revolution , what fun!
