We've been talking about Google's mysterious Fuchsia operating system for a while now, and today, we have a new piece of the puzzle. It's a small piece, for sure, but with Google being so incredibly secretive about the whole thing, we take what we can get. As it turns out, Google has added support for its Pixelbook to Fuchsia, and added a page on how to prepare the Pixelbook for Fuchsia installation, and you can check the how-to commit for information about the installation itself.

Still a far cry from anything even remotely tangible about where Fuchsia is going, but even a slow drip can eventually fill a bucket.

Only Pixelbook?

It is maybe too early to tell, yet the release of instructions specific to only the Pixelbook would suggest that Google is also taking a path of forced obsolescence for their devices:

No support for Android Apps for the Pixel 2013.

No recipe/support for Fuchsia for the Pixel 2013, Pixel 2015, and Pixel C even though none of these devices have reached their official end-of-life (at least five years after their release).

And finally, is the aim of Google to ultimately replace both Android and ChromeOS with a single unified operating system not based on Linux?
