The project has been listed on GitHub since 2016, and people have been playing around with the browser-based live demo for quite a while. Now Google has made the site live for everyone. Earlier this year, the search engine giant hired an Apple engineer to help it build the new operating system.

According to the developer site, Fuchsia OS is an “open-source operating system” similar to Android Open Source Project (AOSP). Google emphasized that “Fuchsia is not Linux.” It’s a “modular, capability-based operating system.” The source documentation page is as cryptic as it could be with “Pink + Purple == Fuchsia (a new Operating System).”
