Google's Fuchsia OS is no secret anymore. This new operating system is being worked hard to bring it to life.
This represents an attempt by Google to bring a homogeneous and unified operating system across all of its devices. In other words, create an ecosystem like Apple.
Speaking of Apple, according to 91mobiles, Google has recruited a 14-year veteran to help move this project forward.
Bill Stevenson has been programming manager for 14 years at Apple
There is no doubt that Google and Apple are the technology companies that compete most with each other. In this sense it is funny to see a long time employee change company.
Stevenson helped build macOS from the early days of OS X to today. This also helps us understand what the state of Fuchsia OS development is. Considering the magnitude of this new hire, it should not be far from the final stages.
Apple is probably the company with the best technology ecosystem. No wonder they recruit a former apple contributor to create the same ideology but at Google.
What will Fuchsia OS look like?
Firstly this operating system will be able to run Android applications, obviously. Google is also working to implement compatibility with Chromium and Chromecast.
The idea behind Fuchsia OS is to have a cross platform system that fits any device. This is the essence of an ecosystem and if it comes to fruition it can indicate a big change in the way we view our smartphones, tablets or even computers.
In short, this is another step in this "dream" of Google. I confess that it would be interesting a bet of the Mountain View company in this regard. However, given the size and presence of Android, we are unlikely to see the little green "robot" leaving soon.
