Google Gets Fuchsia OS Running on Pixelbooks

  • Google Gets Fuchsia OS Running on Pixelbooks

The experimental OS, which Google has reportedly been working on for more than a year, is still in-development and is being created by the tech giant, along with the help of its third-party developer community, thanks to the platform's open-sourced nature.

It is interesting that Fuchsia has been ported onto the Pixelbook which is now running Chrome OS.

If waiting for more info from Google isn't your thing, you can now flash Fuchsia and try it yourself, but there's a very expensive piece of equipment you need to have in order to use it. But whatever it is, it is getting built, growing, and will, at some point, arrive alongside Android and Chrome OS. Head over to the Google Source page for the OS and load it on up.

After paving is completed, the target system should boot in Fuchsia's Zircon kernel rather than the Linux kernel.

As Google notes in Fuchsia's installation guide, the new OS can also run on the Acer Switch 12 and Intel NUC.

What Does Fuchsia Run on Right Now?

That means it doesn't have to deal with older, legacy devices and software code in the same way that Android and Chrome OS might have to - and that in turn should result in a leaner, more efficient operating system.

The last time we looked at Fuchsia, the system UI was able to be packaged up as an APK and run on top of an Android phone. Google stopped developing this branch of the system UI, though, so there's no way to get it running on an Android phone anymore. According to the new reports from Chrome Unboxed, Google has released the documentation to install the Fuchsia OS on Pixelbook. Detailed by Google, the media creation process is "destructive" to the USB drive, so don't use a USB stick that you're attached to. The kernel also allows the OS to run in modified form on a multitude of devices, such as IoT devices, and could even allow Google to have a unified OS for its entire product base, in due time. In any case there's no telling on when Google might share details about the platform, but Google I/O 2018 is taking place later this year so perhaps this is the year Google could finally announce something.
