The operating system in development of Google: Fuchsia has a new device the Pixelbook
The operating system in development of Google, Fuchsia, has a new development device: Google Pixelbook. Google’s $ 1,000 laptop generally runs Chrome OS, but with the latest versions of Fuchsia, you can change the browser-based operating system for Google’s experimental operating system. Fuchsia, which only began to develop in 2016, is the third operating system of Google after Chrome OS and Android. Development documents describe that the operating system targets modern phones and modern personal computers, which apparently would put it in competition with Google’s existing operating systems. Everything is in the air given the initial state of the project, but it seems a rewrite from scratch of a modern operating system. The operating system does not use the Linux kernel. Fuchsia uses a microkernel developed by Google previously called Magenta and is currently called Zircon.
The Escher processor is written in the Vulkan graphics API and seems tailor-made to execute the guidelines of the design interface of many shaded Google materials. The applications are written in the Google Flutter SDK, which produces cross-platform code that also runs on Android and iOS. Fuchsia is still incredibly difficult to run. Along with Pixelbook, Fuchsia only supports two other pieces of little-known hardware: an Acer Switch Alpha 12 laptop and older Intel NUCs from 2015. Fuchsia can be run on the open-source emulator QEMU, but the Fuchsia graphics stack requires compatibility with Vulkan QEMU does not have Vulkan support, so the emulator can not show the Fuchsia interface, only a command line is obtained.

FUCHSIA: What We Know So Far About Google’s New OS
In August 2016 a mysterious code was posted on GitHub. It didn’t take long until it was clear that it was the code for a new operating system that Google’s developers were working on.
Here’s what we know so far about the OS:
Fuchsia is reported to be a real-time operating system. Unlike Google’s previous two operating systems – Android and Chrome OS, Fuchsia is not based on a Linux kernel! Instead it’s based on a new microkernel called “Magenta”.
According to the documentation, Magenta targets modern phones and modern personal computers, quote, with fast processors, non-trivial amounts of ram with arbitrary peripherals doing open ended computation. So yeah, at this point anything is possible!
While Fuchsia is based on Magenta, Magenta itself is based on another kernel called LK, short for Little Kernel, which is designed for small systems typically used in embedded applications.
Recently Fuchsia was updated with a user interface called Armadillo!
Fuchsia, upon completion, would be Google’s third publicly available operating system, coming after Android and Chrome OS.

Google is testing its new Fuchsia OS on Pixelbooks
For more than a year, Google has been experimenting with a new operating system, which is called Fuchsia. Created by the Mountain View company and released as an open source operating system in which the community can contribute, Fuchsia remains a mystery, as Google has not provided more details about its purpose or devices on which it will be used officially: however, a Chrome Unboxed report seems to indicate that Google will allow us to install this operating system on Chromebook computers.
Note that this is not a common operating system and, in reality, we will need two additional computers for a Pixelbook to use it. Being in an early development phase, it is somewhat surprising that Google has decided to launch this OS to be used by this class of computers: however, it seems that Google wants to use Fuchsia in different devices, such as phones, computers and wearables
Created from the Google Zircon micronucleus, this operating system manages to stand out, because it does not use Linux-based systems, such as Android and Chrome OS. If, in the future, Fuchsia acquires greater traction, it is extremely likely that we will see a homogeneous operating system for the devices that are part of the Google product family.
Previously, rumors had mentioned that the Mountain View company was working on a Pixel laptop, which would mix the aforementioned operating systems: instead of doing this, Google added compatibility to Chrome OS, but it seems that Fuchsia’s development means who have not left the aforementioned plan behind.
