A new OS begins to be deployed.


Wondering how Fuchsia initiated by Google, based on Zircon, will compete with distributions based on a Linux kernel in the years to come.

Well...

Linux Kernel + Busybox based Linux system + Desktop made on Java = Android

Minix like Kernel + Busybox based Minix like system + Desktop made on Javascript With Objects = Fuchsia

I for one, I believe that the rise of Fuchsia devices pushed by Google will positively affects the Linux users, because there would be no more moneys and demands to make those cursed LTS kernels which haunt us, so the distributions will start to maintain modern kernels - like in the latest stable kernels...

chrome://system

I already jumped on the band wagon. Can't speak about tomorrow. It may never come.
At least I can I can install Gnu/Linux on this chromebook if I wish.

Not sure how drm and proprietary are gonna fit in on these new products.
If they don't lock you out. That at least is a plus, in my book.

This chromebook cost was about that of good SSD hard drive or good high ram video card.

In contrast to prior Google-developed operating systems such as Chrome OS and Android, which are based on the Linux kernel, Fuchsia is based on a new kernel called Zircon. After years of development, Fuchsia was officially released to the public on the first-generation Google Nest Hub, replacing its original Cast OS.
I imagine that the Fuchsia gear will be cheap to buy also. Price seems to be the main attraction.

For the kids of this generation

Use FreeBSD and avoid all that.

I'll help you get started.

Thanks - I already got started a few years ago, I think 8.3-release may have been the first one I installed... oddly enough I'm running FreeBSD 12.2 at work at the moment, but that's another story...

I stopped using OpenBSD during the lockdown last year, as I needed a Windows PC for my son's home schooling. Nowadays I hardly use a computer at home anyway - mainly because I'm stuck in front of two or three all day at work.

I knew you had used OpenBSD and FreeBSD a long time. I was talking about them avoiding what you posted by switching and I'd help them get started.

My Sister works at a computer all day and got to take hers home for a few months during Covid cockeyed catching cries caused countrywide craziness.

She hates to touch one when she gets off work and only knows the billing program she runs. She has to call somebody like us to come fix it for her when it crashes or needs work on it and admits she couldn't follow my Tutorial.
