Okay, now it’s official! Facebook wants to become the biggest tech company so bad. The newest development from the company is that it is building a Facebook OS to rival Android dependency in the smartphone market.
This report by The Information says an ex-Microsoft engineer, Mark Lucovsky, who helped build the Windows NT OS is leading the project.
Facebook’s head of hardware, Andrew Bosworth, said, “We really want to make sure the next generation has space for us…. We don’t think we can trust the marketplace or competitors to ensure that’s the case. And so we’re gonna do it ourselves.”
The report also noted that it looks like Facebook is trying to take Apple’s “walled garden” approach in developing its current and future hardware.
Let’s see it goes in the coming years, given that nobody really trusts Facebook anymore.
