Fuchsia is not replacing Android, at least not for now
by Alan Friedman / May 20, 2017, 10:48 PM
According to Burke, Fuchsia is an early stage project that will "pivot and morph" The executive adds that it is independent of Android and called it an "early stage experimental project." So if you were concerned that Google was starting on a successor to Android, you have nothing to worry about for now.
That's not to say that some time in the distant future, one of the pivots and morphs to Fuchsia takes the OS toward a showdown against Android. But for now, Android fans have no reason at all to fear what is basically an experiment.

The problem is, how many developers will support this?

Same question was asked of iOS and Android when they were released. The fact is that once something gets too old, you have to start fresh or you end up with too much baggage. If you do it right, usually you win in the long run.

I wasn't worried I was hoping Android would be replaced. As long as google insists on sticking with android their phones will lag

No linux kernel...? Well, if it runs natively on the machine (Like iOS and Windows 10 Mobile) and not on a VM, then I'd say "Go Google"...! This will completely 'revolutionize' the 'Google' experience... But... I doubt its going to happen anytime soon... Maybe in 10 years or so... But since Android "O" is getting some 'super duper' optimization, I'll wait patiently... Pixel now loads a good 10 or so sec quicker with The Android "O" that happens to be in a beta... Imagine its speed in the 'stable' form...! Android "O" to me is... Kitkat Reloaded...!!! G'Day!

Hope Fuchsia written with C++ not Java. If Google ditch Android bet that Samsung going to buy it.
