Google. Simply saying the name is enough to give some shivers down their spine. While they have been quite fundamental to the sucess of Linux, they are known for being a evil, privacy destroying company. But, thankfully, they are known to make many of the components of their operating systems open sourced. While there are many open sourced distributions of Android, for the longest time, it didn’t seem like there wasn’t any equivalient for ChromeOS. That was t’ill now. Dahlia OS is a open sourced, Fuchsia based, Linux distro with its own desktop, apps, and package repository. I personally gave it a whirl, and I would like to share my experience with you, so you might consider giving it a try.

Hey, I wanted to see at least a single screenshot. :(

DahliaOS is not a Google product/project right?

No, it’s based off of the open sourced parts of Google’s new operating system, but it is completely independent from google.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
