Google files trademark for Pigweed: A new operating system?


google logo G at ces 20201

Google is currently working on an operating system dubbed Fuchsia, but the plot may have thickened after the company filed a trademark for an operating platform dubbed Pigweed.

The Pigweed name was first spotted on the USPTO website by a redditor, and the filing describes it as being related to “computer operating software.”

9to5Google also spotted it in the Chromium code repository and in a proposed code change for the Fuchsia operating system. In the case of the latter, the name was subsequently changed from “pigweed” to “fuchsia.”

A screenshot from the name change (seen above) suggests that the developer responsible for using the “pigweed” name simply made a mistake. So this isn’t quite hard evidence that “pigweed” is tied to Fuchsia then.

Could it be a new name for Fuchsia? Is it related to Chromebooks? What about IoT devices? Unfortunately, we don’t know anything else about Pigweed for now aside from this name and these entries.

What do you think Pigweed could be? Give us your guesses in the comments section!
