Jolicloud: Building the Perfect OS for Your Netbook

Jolicloud is a Linux-based operating system founded in 2008 by Tariq Krim, who is based from Paris. The cloud is built upon Debian and Ubuntu 9.10, but is tweaked for netbooks and other computers with limited disk storage, memory, and screen size. It can also run Windows-only products by using Wine.

A Simpler, Customizable Launcher Entirely Built in HTML5

  • Installing an app takes only one click, and removing it is just as easy.
  • Jolicloud comes with some of the best apps already pre-installed, including Gmail, Skype, Twitter, Firefox, and more.
  • It’s up to you to organize your apps the way you want - your launcher is customizable.
  • Because everything is in one place, it’s easy to manage your files and data, whether they’re on your machine or in the Cloud.
  • Jolicloud facilitates access to popular online storage services like box.net, Dropbox, and drop.io, with new services being added frequently.

Experience the Anywhere OS

  • You can install Jolicloud on as many devices as you’d like, and they will always be automatically synchronized. Any app you download, delete, or move around will be the same on all your other machines with no extra work on your part.
  • You can even manage your interface from the Cloud - if you don’t have your computer with you, log in on any HTML5 browser like Chrome to add, remove, or organize apps.
  • Moving from machine to machine has never been so easy

I'm personally using Jolicloud on my netbook. The installation is very easy. It's like you're just installing a software on your netbook. I also did check on removing the cloud and it's user-friendly, like installing it, you'll just have to uninstall it on the Add/Remove Programs under your Control Panel.
All on Jolicloud is easy and it's fast. Try Jolicloud now!
