Always Innovating’s Super-Jumbo Image Rocks AIOS, Android, Chromium OS, Ubuntu on a Single ARM-based BeagleBoard

Wow, talk about exuding ultimate geekiness (in a good way). Always Innovating has just released a “Super-Jumbo” image (FREE) for the hacker-friendly $149 BeagleBoard that allows users to switch operating systems, with a touch a button, without having to reboot or make use of virtualization. As you’ll see in the demo below, the 1Ghz ARM OMAP3 chip on the BeagleBoard capably runs AIOS (an Ångström fork), Android Gingerbread 2.3, Ubuntu Maverick 10.10, and Chromium OS. So, if you have the need to multitask between operating systems, or just can’t live within one environment, this may be for you. It could also make for a nice parent or kid-friendly Internet surf station while running Chromium OS. [via]

FYI, Always Innovating are the folks who launched the original netbook / tablet “transformer” back in 2009, which they dubbed the Touch Book.

Looking for a BeagleBoard xM enclosure? I just found these: metal – $39, acrylic – $29 (it appears this version has touch points for the board switches — call before buying).
