At first (when it was still codenamed Hongmeng) it was nothing more than a crude android fork, but everything changed with version 2.x because they went from being a mobile operating system (android), to being a distributed operating system (HOS is platform agnostic), native (embedded) Javascript support and its own Typescript implementation ( eTS). And since version 3.x they are already rewriting the critical components (android core/APIS) to avoid legal conflicts with Oracle and western big techs, as well as the future migration to their own programming language: Cangjie (as far as I understand, very similar to Java/C#), so HOS as a future project will resemble a JVM/.NET on steroids and closer to be an universal system in many aspects.

Made in China. Hence the fear of the entire Western technology sector.
