"Given Google's behavior of the past few years, I know which one my money's on"
^ Absolutely this. Google's now even surpassed Apple as the King of Abandonware with discarded projects littered all over the place and Fuchsia may yet end up in that pile of rejects too.
Picasa was used and appreciated by millions...so it was killed off. The Nik filter collection was bought and then sold on and if I recall correctly one of the robotics concerns acquired by Google has now been terminated too.
Finally, memo to the obvious Google employee who keeps on voting critical comments down:
1. Get a life;
2. Put the entire Fuchsia project under a GPL licence and watch magical things happen (like a great increase in developer interest).
