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.

Super Jumbo also runs on Always Innovating’s hardware including the Touch Book and Smart Book.

I’m honestly not sure why you’d want to switch between these four operating systems, but I suppose it’s nice to know that you can. You can check out a demo video after the break.

  1. I would even be interested in AI Smart Book if it was based on OMAP4, had 1 GB of RAM and featured an IPS display.

    Concept is brilliant, current implementation is weak.
