It will take ages to replace Android as it took Symbian. Because of popularity and people mindset as dominat OS, I would say even it is much better than Android OS it will take minimum 5-10 years to challange iOS and Android populariry, and within this time Google will release new OS, so nothing is certain for Huawei yet

As a tech watcher I only pick the best and suitable for me on my parameters and term, everyone is free to compete. Let the people decide. Android is good enough for now, but if only another OS do much better surely I will totally migrate to the new OS. Healthy competition but not monopoly.

laughable, 12 Aug 2019us army switch to harmony os... i dont really think so... ... moreWell if something gets better far more user friendly and complete open source as Harmony OS claimed to be there is a point.
We have to see what will going to happen.
But i belive i predict an ultra rich future for Harmony OS.
Google went on the throne for long enough now its time for another price to take on the throne.
Google were and still is perfect OS but if someone will be more sucessfull then its time to go and swwap the train.
By the way only India and China have like 40% of Global population.
Europe and USA cant compete in numbers of customers and the rich USA and Europe market rich of wealthy customers is open for new stable free and complete open source OS like harmony.

OTOH there were never any charges brought by China against Meng's possession of multiple passports, illegal by Chinese law, talk about government coverups.
There was sufficient evidence of Huawei selling to Iran and that's enough to put them on the list, the other consideration is obviously the trade war in which the goal is to get China to remove most restrictions to foreign investment, lower import duties and cease governmental subsidies to exports.

A modular OS. Sounds like Windows Core OS to me.

Sound promising. It's totally makes a lot of sense and this could be the big thing.

"Determnistic means low latency". What Cr@p is this?

Anyone who has studied even a little bit of real time systems knows that deterministic means being predictable, and not with reducing latency!

This is another Lenovo like company throwing bullcr@p on the gullible customer. When will these Chinese ever stop at deceving? Sheesh!

Finally a alternative OS, I hope harmony OS and Ubuntu give strong competition to Android so that google gives more importance to android OS development rather than creating new methods to spy on android users and flooding google apps with ads.
