  • Google's Mysterious Fuchsia OS Developer Site Debuts With New Fascinating Details

    Google's mysterious Fuchsia OS has been a skunkworks project at Google for years now, with only small glimpses of the new operating system...

  • Google's Fuchsia OS Developer Site Debuts

    Forbes reports that Google has launched a new website, fuchsia.dev, with documentation and source for Fuchsia OS, including the Zircon microkernel.signed to run on anything from 32-bit or 64-bit ARM cores to 64-bit X86 processors and it has a potential to be rather disruptive."

  • Fuchsia OS Developer Site Goes Live With Documentation

    oogle hasn’t revealed much about Fuchsia OS publicly, but every now and then, it quietly drops hints and clues which further affirm the progress of the mysterious OS.

  • My phone’s not dumb, it just looks it.

    For my money, the height of the smartphone age was 2009-2011. That brought us the Nokia n900 and Nokia n9. Both brilliant for their own reasons. There were devices before that which I’d be happy to have back. But nothing since then. Sure, the Ubuntu Edge or Neo900 would have been great. But they never came to be.

Google opens a website for Fuchsia OS development

  • Google opens a website for Fuchsia OS development

    Up until recently, we knew very little about Google’s Fuchsia OS. First appearing on GitHub back in 2016 with no official announcement, theories quickly sprang up about what it could be. Some touted it as a replacement for Android, others as a replacement for Chrome OS. The reality was that no one knew exactly what it was. Reading the code hinted at an OS that was intended to be run on multiple platforms, and indeed, senior vice president of Android and Chrome Hiroshi Lockheimer confirmed that this was the case at Google I/O 2019.

    In an interview with The Verge, Lockheimer said that while the OS was purely experimental, it was about “pushing the state of the art in terms of operating systems.” While it was relieving to finally see Google comment on the project in an official capacity, Lockheimer’s interview didn’t really reveal an awful lot. Now, however, a little more information has trickled through.

Linux Kernel: Chrome OS, Direct Rendering Manger (DRM) and Char/Misc

  • Various Chrome OS Hardware Support Improvements Make It Into Linux 5.3 Mainline

    Various Chrome OS hardware platform support improvements have made it into the Linux 5.3 kernel for those after running other Linux distributions on Chromebooks and the like as well as reducing Google's maintenance burden with traditionally carrying so much material out-of-tree.

  • The Massive DRM Pull Request With AMDGPU Navi Support Sent In For Linux 5.3

    At 479,818 lines of new code and just 36,145 lines of code removed while touching nearly two thousand files, the Direct Rendering Manger (DRM) driver updates for Linux 5.3 are huge. But a big portion of that line count is the addition of AMD Radeon RX 5000 "Navi" support and a good portion of that in turn being auto-generated header files. Navi support is ready for the mainline Linux kernel!

  • Char/Misc Has A Bit Of Changes All Over For Linux 5.3

    The char/misc changes with each succeeding kernel release seem to have less changes to the character device subsystem itself and more just a random collection of changes not fitting in other subsystems / pull requests. With Linux 5.3 comes another smothering of different changes.
