Not that I am going to enjoy it more than any other OS (I will forever be where the users are), but if they take it further, they may challenge the establishment of the day in computing.

In other words, Google is taking LK, adding bloated code, in hopes of developing a bloated OS. Somehow I doubt this will have any real-world advantage over lightweight GNU/Linux distros.

On top of which, if Android is any indication, Fuchsia will probably be heavily tied into Google’s advertising network, which means no one can escape Google’s cyber-stalking without disconnecting from the internet (unless the Electronics Frontier Foundation’s lawsuit against the anti-circumventions of the DMCA bears fruit).
