Google Is Developing A New Operating System For Everything


In August 2016, media outlets reported on a mysterious source code repository published on GitHub, revealing that Google was developing a new operating system named Fuchsia. No official announcement was made, but inspection of the code suggested its capability to run on various devices, including "dash infotainment" systems for cars, embedded devices like traffic lights, digital watches, smartphones, tablets, and PCs. Its architecture differs entirely from the Linux-based Android and ChromeOS due in part to its unique Zircon kernel, formerly named Magenta.[8][9][10][11][12][13]




Google is developing a new operating system for everything



Google has been developing Android and ChromeOS towards a convergence of operating systems in recent years. Thanks to the addition of mouse and keyboard support, Android is becoming increasingly useful as a desktop operating system.


In 2005, the next significant chapter in Android history began when Google acquired the original company. Rubin and other founding members continued developing the OS under their new owners. They then decided to use Linux as the basis for the Android OS. That made it possible to offer the operating system to third-party mobile manufacturers for free. Google and the Android team felt the company could profit from providing other services, including apps.


Ikea, like Tesco, leverages existing assets and capabilities to experiment with business models. After the company entered Russia, managers noticed that whenever it opened a store, the value of nearby real estate increased dramatically. So Ikea decided to explore two business models simultaneously: retailing through its stores and capturing the appreciation in real estate values through mall development. It now makes more profit in Russia from developing and operating malls than from its traditional retail business.


Google Inc. is hoping to gain greater control over how personal computers work by developing a free operating system that will attack Microsoft Corp.'s golden goose - its long-dominant Windows franchise.


In the past few years, developers and academics have touted microkernel operating systems as the best option for IoT and other smart devices. When I worked at Microsoft, there was a grand plan of scrapping the aging Windows Embedded code base, rife with decades-old legacy code, and starting over to create a scalable new OS that would work on everything from home appliances to industrial machinery (Spoiler alert: That never happened). Prior to Huawei's HarmonyOS, the only other example of a microkernel-based OS I'd heard of was Google's Project Fuchisa.


The two platforms have similarities, but developing applications for iOS and Android requires different software development kits (SDKs) and development toolchains. The Apple iOS can only run on Apple devices. The Android operating system is open to devices from other manufacturers, as long as they meet requirements, including specific Google applications installed on the devices.


Machine Translation is an excellent example of how cutting-edge research and world-class infrastructure come together at Google. We focus our research efforts on developing statistical translation techniques that improve with more data and generalize well to new languages. Our large scale computing infrastructure allows us to rapidly experiment with new models trained on web-scale data to significantly improve translation quality. This research backs the translations served at translate.google.com, allowing our users to translate text, web pages and even speech. Deployed within a wide range of Google services like GMail, Books, Android and web search, Google Translate is a high-impact, research-driven product that bridges language barriers and makes it possible to explore the multilingual web in 90 languages. Exciting research challenges abound as we pursue human quality translation and develop machine translation systems for new languages.


Google says it's going to focus initially on developing the Chrome operating system for netbooks that consumers can purchase in the second half of 2010.These smaller-than-laptop computers have skyrocketed in popularity because of their portability and the ease with which users can browse the Web and check e-mail. But the announcement is also a milestone for other reasons.


Jacobs says other companies like Red Hat have made strides in developing open-source operating systems based on Linux, too, but they don't have the same name recognition in the marketplace. What's more, the average person doesn't have a comfort level with open-source systems. Still, the popular Web browser Firefox, created by Mozilla, is an example of one such program that has gained wide appeal.


Well we think that the problem with most people's mobile phones is that they're not powerful enough. You can't get all the rich aspects of the Web on your phone and so we built, with Andy's help, an operating system, a platform, whatever you want to call it, that runs inside your phone, that makes it do everything a personal computer can do on your phone.
