In my opinion, it doesn’t make much sense to entangle whether a system is a brand-new autonomous operating system. Let me talk about another thing first: maybe even today, many people don’t know, the real name of the Android system should be called Android/Linux. The Android system is a pure Linux that meets the definition, and the kernel modification part is also public. Also entered the Linux upstream. The Android system completely uses the Linux kernel. But, why don’t people think that Android is Linux in the usual sense? My answer to this question is: Because Android does not share the application ecosystem with Linux, they run different apps. So for Hongmeng, has Hongmeng replaced the Linux kernel in Android? My answer: Maybe there is, maybe not, but it doesn’t really matter at all. What do I think is important? It is whether Hongmeng has built, which is different from Android’s application ecology. ——This answer is currently not available. Therefore, in my definition, at least for the moment, Hongmeng is indeed an Android case. So here comes the question: Some people will ask, Google has no objection, and it didn’t say that Hongmeng is an Android case. It is your turn to object to this monster? The person who asked this question lacked the most basic understanding of open source software. So I have to spread a common sense to everyone. There are many different release agreements for open source software, but most of them say that the release agreement has some commonality: it allows you to modify the source code of the software at will, and rename it to be released by yourself. It is an important feature of open source software. Almost all open source protocols support, allow, and encourage you to modify it and then rename it and release it. Because open source software opens up one of the most important rights, that is, the right to “redistribute.” Anyone can publish an open source software. Some open source software allows users to modify and publish it, but it is not allowed to use the original name. That is to say, for some open source software agreements, if you want to publish the modified software by yourself, yes Must be renamed. ——Yes, open source software first encourages you to make changes to the community. If you are unwilling and want to release your own version by yourself, then it is recommended that you do not use the original name. It is recommended that you change the name to avoid confusion with the official version of the software. Therefore, “if” Hongmeng is a shelled Android, this in itself is in full compliance with the AOSP (Open Source Android) release agreement, so Google cannot and cannot have any opinions. So is Hongmeng a shell Android? I may think it is, you may think it is not, but this question is really not important. There are several reasons for this: everyone has different definitions of shells, and it makes no sense to debate issues on the basis of different definitions. The shelling itself is completely reasonable and legal, and Android, as an open source software, can be shelled. Huawei did not use Hongmeng to defraud the national scientific research funds, so it does not matter whether it is developed independently or not, and it does not matter. Borrowing Android’s application ecology directly is good for everyone at the moment and is a reasonable and rational choice. For users, it is Android because it uses the Android app application ecosystem. For developers, it is also Android because its development tools and products are also Android apps. So what do you say is its underlying kernel, does it matter? It makes no sense at all. In the future, Hongmeng may be able to develop its own application ecology. At that time, I would admit that it is an independent operating system, but the current Hongmeng is obviously not. The final conclusion: It is completely meaningless to discuss whether Hongmeng is a brand-new autonomous operating system. At present, it is only for marketing purposes. For end users and application developers, it can be considered that the current Hongmeng is Android.
