So to recap: yesterday, Huawei was shipping smartwatches using LiteOS, and today, it’s shipping smartwatches with “HarmonyOS,” which is based on LiteOS. Yesterday, it was shipping phones and tablets using a forked version of Android without Google services. Today, Huawei is shipping “HarmonyOS” on phones and tablets, which is forked Android without Google services. Did anything actually change here?
That about sums it up. We were promised a brand new operating system, but in reality, all they gave us is yet another Android fork, of which there are countless.
Android, Linux, Unix, etc., etc.. in a wide perspective it’s all skin on skin, is there a difference?
Not sure why we would claim flavours and tints are something different, a bit like claiming coffee variants aren’t all coffee.
