Jolicloud Netbook Operating System Now Available

“After a year and a half of development and beta-testing, Jolicloud 1.0 has been released for free download at and supported by a fervent community on social networks”, writes Jen, the PR person for Jolicloud in an email that landed in my inbox this morning.

Just in case, you’ve no idea of what Jolicloud is (I wrote about it in December 2008 “Introducing Jolicloud, Another Cloud Operating System Contender“), it’s an operating system for netbooks meaning that it is designed to work flawlessly with the portable, lightweight and not-so-powerful mini-laptops.

Now the question is: after almost three years of netbooks becoming mainstream and users getting used to Windows operating systems whether or not they work well on netbook computers, are current users ready for a revolutionary OS?

I guess that we will see but so far, the company’s Facebook Page has over 10 000 fans which is something for a company that’s been laying low all this time.

Honestly, Jolicloud isn’t that good. I see how it’s a great concept and all, but for a 1.0 release, it’s just too buggy and doesn’t have enough features. I’ve had issues installing Jolicloud with both installers, and the fact that you can’t do simple customization features like change your wallpaper or install apps that aren’t on the Jolicloud database made me uninstall it.
