New Google system, Fuchsia wins website for developers

The Fuchsia is real. Well, as real as we might suspect it to be, as this week has quietly released a website dedicated to operating system developers. Although Google itself remains firm in its policy of absolute silence about the system, the arrival of the dedicated page adds even more weight to rumors that the internet giant would be working on the new operating system.

The site does not have a lot of stuff: a few links related to the documentation, the template that follows the standards of most Google pages, and the company's terms of use and privacy, as well as registration of the domain with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN). However, the page is still "raw," with no guidance on what Fuchsia really is, or what he has so different about Android and Chrome OS.

At least there is an official character behind the new operating system: after years refusing to comment on its mere existence, Google finally recognized Fuchsia at the last Google I / O in May. The new site, however, contains material that can excite developers - especially those specializing in Linux - by mentioning Zircon, the microkernel that pervades the entire operating system.

Google is in no hurry to speak publicly about Fuchsia, recognizing that while it does exist and has its mark, the operating system is now more for an application development environment that synergizes the experience between Android and Chrome OS than a system itself.

Anyway, the arrival of an inviting page to developers adds more fuel to the debate of its operation. Interested parties can access the site directly to start playing with their features, but it is recommended to use machines that bring features supported by the tools: some examples include the Acer Switch Alpha 12, the Intel NUC, plus of course the Google Pixelbook.
