    Phoronix: Google Will Now Pay $31,337 To $50,337 For New Linux Kernel Vulnerabilities

    Google announced today that now through at least the end of January they will be providing higher payment amounts for security researchers disclosing new vulnerabilities affecting the Linux kernel...

          Will Google phase out Linux for Fuchsia?
          On Chromebooks? on Android? in the data centers in the cloud? Everywhere?

            they do not want to know details of vulnerability ahead of public before patches arrive. So vulnerability is supposed to be fixed by the day it is reported to them.

            Google in general feels so torn apart in terms of aproach, how they come to vulnerabilities is very reasonable and good, and same security experts they employ disagree with design choices for example Chrome makes.

              I think even if they manage to make Fuchsia worth considering in production, they'll end up porting Linux drivers for a while.

                They're already running Fuchsia on Google Nest Hub, so I guess it is only a matter of time before it is on Google home speakers, Wi-Fi, and then eventually Chromebooks.

                  knowing what you know about google bed time with NSA, and knowing about google constant infringements of user rights..
                  In my view you report the bugs, and google will say, "ho that problem was already solved...so no money", and them suddenly will patch the code hahaha
                  A bunch of pirates..

                    Most likely Fuchsia will never surpass Linux from a performance perspective because of the IPC overhead inherited from the microkernel design.
                    However, with continued hardware advancements, this will increasingly become less of a problem.
                    That's why I believe that over the long term Fuchsia will probably become the main competitor of Linux in the FOSS space.

                    Let's hope Google will not slow down their contributions to Linux should they really make the switch to Fuchsia in earnest.
