Always Innovating, the company that brought us a tablet/netbook hybrid that you could stick to a refrigerator is back. But this time instead of focusing on its own hardware, this time the company is showcasing software it’s developed which can run on the $149 BeagleBoard compact computing platform.
The software is called Super-Jumbo, and for good reason. Basically it’s a single disk image which combines four operating systems: Google Android 2.3, Ubuntu 10.10, Google Chromium OS, and AIOS, a custom operating system developed by Always Innovating.
Long story short, you can use Super Jumbo to run any of the above operating systems on a BeagleBoard-based system, or quickly switch between operating systems that are currently running without rebooting.
The entire disk image comes in at just 2.04GB, which isn’t bad for 4 complete operating systems.
