Android, Chrome OS, and Ubuntu All in One Platform
[pcworld.com]
With so many exciting new operating systems to choose from today, it can be tough to settle on just one--particularly if you're an open source fan.

Recently, however, Always Innovating has created an option that allows users to avoid choosing altogether. A new platform demonstrated recently by the company on YouTube (video below) combines Canonical's Ubuntu and Google's Android and Chrome OS with its own, custom Linux-based operating system to offer a quad-boot alternative.

Yes, that's four operating systems in one, downloadable for free from Always Innovating's site in just 2.04GB.

I would rather be able to run Android apps on Linux, alongside normal linux apps. People have worked on it but AFAIK some of Google's kernel changes have not (yet) been accepted into the mainline which is holding back decent performance.

The emulator that comes with the SDK is not of practical use except for development or testing.

I would avoid any system that installed anything google. One of the points of open source as far as I'm concerned is increased security. :(

Google produces a lot of open source, including Android prior to version 3. The Android apps on Linux could run on an open source platform, and could be open source themselves

My point was: google != security. :(

I am resurrecting this thread, because having seen a video, I want one of these. I WANT ONE OF THESE.

@dstiles, pint taken, but this has four OSes, so you can use it without ever booting either of the Google ones.

Please enjoy the pint you took. :)

I would not install anything google purely on security grounds - very exploitable!

How can it be exploited if you never run it?

I wish I could get a decent pint around here!
