Definition: Fuchsia


An operating system from Google that runs on all devices from mobiles to desktops. Debuting in 2021 and pronounced "fyoo-sha," Fuchsia is expected to combine the best features of embedded and desktop operating systems. Embedded systems are designed for small-footprint, real-time response, while a desktop OS is created to handle large programs and multiple simultaneous tasks. As a product designed from scratch, there are also no intellectual property or licensing issues.

First deployed on Google's Nest Hub virtual assistant, Fuchsia is a completely new OS that uses the message-passing Zircon kernel, which was derived from a real-time kernel for embedded systems. See Google.
