New Google's OS called “Fuchsia”

Google is developing an OS called “Fuchsia,” runs on All the Things

"Every single operating system developed by Google to date has one thing in common: they're based on the Linux kernel. Chrome OS, Android, Chromecasts, you name it. Linux has powered Google hardware for years. However, the Linux kernel is not ideal for every situation. Especially in the case of embedded devices like car dashboards or GPS units, full-blown desktop kernels like Linux impact performance and cause other issues.
Fuchsia. the project’s GitHub page is simply, “Pink + Purple == Fuchsia (a new Operating System)”.

Google is using Flutter for the user interface, as well as Dart as the primary programming language. The icing on the cake is Escher, a renderer that supports light diffusion, soft shadows, and other visual effects, with OpenGL or Vulkan under the hood.
