Andreidinutu, 10 Sep 2020It was a bad joke. How do you think anyone would have ever gotten a computer from the early 80... moreI'm not saying you're using it.
You could have it.
As I don't like to sale my stuff, I still have my Samsung folding somewhere in my house which I owned back in 2005.
So, I thought you might have kept it.
Creating an OS from scratch at this point is nigh impossible, I mean think about it, Microsoft, Mozilla, Samsung, Nokia and BlackBerry are all tech giants with hundreds of billions of dollars worth of combined RnD couldn't keep up with Android and iOS. You can't just magically force developers to work on apps for platforms that have the most basic of basic APIs unavailable you just CAN'T; they'd have to spend ages working on the environment instead of actually working on the apps they want to create.
You'd also create the problem of fragmentation. You must provide the incentive for the average developer to build for more than a single platform, a large user base, excellent system documentation, excellent hardware for both the users and the devs, excellent support for web, graphics, software and hardware technologies are all crucial alongside constant work of maintaining and improving these components to stay actually usable.
Android became the success it is not because some random ass reason but because it came out at the right time, mindset, and had to fill a gap that was wide open.
HarmonyOS if it's not based on Android(which is highly unlikely because the entirety of China couldn't produce a f**k1ng web browser) is destined to fail.

Anyways, to make it easier for you, it is there in that article that there will be an open source version of the OS just like AOSP.

I said they can if they want to.
Because Huawei isn't going to change much to the source code.
Because then software will have compatibility issues.
So, Google will know what's going around.
AnonD-754814, 10 Sep 2020So, you have one of those old days computer ?It was a bad joke. How do you think anyone would have ever gotten a computer from the early 80's with 64kb of ram? Or say late 80's
Now to flex around, I have an i7 4790 with a gtx 1070 8gb, and 32gb of ram
Andreidinutu, 10 Sep 2020But I have 64 on my computer. That's a shameSo, you have one of those old days computer ?
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2020As far as I'm aware, no one complained about Tizen. The only complaint was that it was n... moreActually Samsung had released phones with Tizen.
I myself bought one to have the experience.
With that low processor and low ram the experience was better and faster than Android.
It was a little bugy. But as a new OS I could forgive that.
Samsung could invest heavily to improve this OS but they didn't.
Whackcar, 10 Sep 2020If you knew how open-source projects work, you wouldn't write that ignorant comment.
I... moreYes to open source.
And yes to the core coding similarity.
Otherwise Android apps won't support.
You're not thinking straight here.

James, 10 Sep 2020Go huawei! They will beat android and iOS in 3 years.Will never happen. Continue dreaming.

"In addition, Huawei revealed its OpenHarmony project which is an open-source take on HarmonyOS similar to AOSP (Android Open Source Project). It will be open for developers soon and will support devices with as low as 128KB (yes, kilobytes) of RAM."
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2020The only reason Google open sourced Android was to speed up adoption. They then locked it dow... moreYeah, what you said is right. Google is no saint when it comes to business, they had to draw a line of the open-sourceness, otherwise all smartphone companies would use the open-source version for free with a little something on top, & Google would get no money in return for their efforts.
But, a lot of benefits have come out of it too. You have custom ROMs like LineageOS, GrapheneOS that use open GApps & Micro-G to complete replace anything Google. Amazon has FireOS built on Android & they don't pay anything for that to Google.
HarmonyOS will be built on top of Android Open Source Project (AOSP) made mostly by Google & Huawei will use it for free.
My question for you is, will HarmonyOS be open-source ? what will they give back to the world ?
Adul Al SAlami Kebab, 10 Sep 2020It was labeled a useless phoen since it had no GMS and even less apps than Huawei`s current AO... moreIt's not going to get any apps if Samsung wasn't serious about releasing phones with it.
Finally a third player in the mobile os, controlled by US companies, hope Huawei is up to the task. We just need a third player in the computer os, something like Harmony PC OS, o whatever is should be called, maybe Lenovo OS. One can dream. Next is taking down SWIFT code from the US.
Things change, time change Technology cant be stopped. Huawei is unstoppable
