Jolicloud brings the stupidity of web apps to Linux netbooks.

,----[ Quote ]
| There may well be something I'm not getting here, but I 
| honestly can't see what the big deal is about this new 
| Jolicloud distro.
| I should point out that my experience was with an installation 
| of Jolicloud within Easy Peasy, another netbook Linux with 
| Ubuntu Netbook Remix. But I did try out Jolicloud proper on a 
| previous occasion, and it didn't seem any different...



Jolicloud OS seeks to move past browsers

,----[ Quote ]
| Jolicloud starts with a great OS, Ubuntu Netbook Remix, and
| couples it with a different way to use existing web
| applications. We think the developers have done a great job
| integrating Prism into their interface and find it very
| usable. Only time will tell if users are willing to migrate
| from traditional browsing, to using web apps for what they
| really are: an application.


Jolicloud Innovates Atop Ubuntu Netbook Remix

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux distributions designed specifically for use on netbooks is nothing
| new. Canonical produces the Ubuntu Netbook Remix version of Ubuntu for
| these small-sized devices, Intel has their Moblin distribution that is
| very fast and offers an attractive interface, gOS has their own netbook
| distribution...
| [...]
| Jolicloud's 2.6.30 kernel is also built with GCC optimizations for the
| Intel Atom processor and has picked up several out-of-tree kernel modules
| to support different functionality like PCI overclocking and more WiFi
| drivers. Other core improvements include updating the Intel Linux graphics
| stack, striping out unused kernel modules, and making other performance
| refinements.


Jolicloud's Netbook OS is Getting Noticed, Looks Unique

,----[ Quote ]
| Malmrose isn't the only one taking notice of Jolicloud. CNet's Josh Lowensohn
| has taken the beta version of Jolicloud's OS through some early paces, and
| says: "I've been giving it a thorough run-though over the past few days and
| have come away impressed at what it's trying to do. Some bits and pieces are
| definitely still beta, but the underlying approach of making Web sites and
| software applications feel the same, as well as introducing users to new ones
| to use is really innovative." Does this unusual netbook operating system have
| a chance?


Installed Jolicloud, and WOW!

,----[ Quote ]
| This weekend, I installed Jolicloud on Leslee's netbook.  Jolicloud is
| currently in private alpha.  I put in for a key quite a long time ago.  A few
| months ago, I finally got accepted.  But....I've been really busy with the
| wedding and honeymoon, so it just sat there.  Now I regret it.  Wow,
| Jolicloud is phenominal.


Preview of Jolicloud: The social Netbook OS

,----[ Quote ]
| One of those, called Jolicloud is launching in beta in the next few months.
| Created by Tariq Krim, who founded and later left widget-based start page
| Netvibes, the alternate OS has been designed for Web workers, or people who
| do most of their work (or play) on Web applications and services.


Hands-on with an alpha of the Jolicloud netbook distro

,----[ Quote ]
| Jolicloud is a Linux-based netbook OS that is built on top of Canonical's
| Ubuntu Netbook Remix. It uses Mozilla's Prism environment to make Web
| applications accessible outside of the browser.


Checking out the Jolicloud Netbook OS

,----[ Quote ]
| That may, actually, be exactly what is needed to bring the concepts of Ubuntu
| Netbook Remix to the masses. Itâs too early to tell, but Jolicloud looks like
| it has a chance of being one of the first Linux-based netbook distros to take
| off, if they can get deals with hardware manufacturers.


Hands-On Review Of Jolicloud, The iPhonesque OS For Netbooks

,----[ Quote ]
| Founder and former CEO of Netvibes Tariq Krim is moving forward with his
| ambitious Jolicloud project, looking to build a better operating system for
| web workers with netbooks (or smartbooks or cloud computers, whichever term
| you prefer). A couple of days ago, we got a couple of exclusive screenshots
| from the team, and just a day after the startup started sending out a handful
| of invite codes for early adopters who wanted to get a peak at the alpha
| developer release. I also got hold of one and have been using Jolicloud on my
| Acer Aspire ONE for about four days now. These are my initial findings.


Jolicloud â The Innovative OS For The Web-Centric Crowd

,----[ Quote ]
| For an OS that is still in alpha testing, Jolicloud is
| impressive. Surely there are plenty of bugs still need to be
| sorted out, but for the simple, yet user-friendly and easy
| to use interface, it really worth the praise.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
