Jolicloud 1.0 review – watch out Google Chrome OS

Filed under
OS

Can a small team of French developers really take on the might of Google Chrome OS with Jolicloud 1.0? Linux User & Developer thinks they’re in with a shot…

Pros: Slick installer and near-faultless interface and an excellent range of search bar options

Cons: Social networking tab only shows Jolicloud feeds; legacy apps tucked away unnecessarily

We last encountered Jolicloud back in issue 87 during the ‘Pre-Final’ stages of its development. As an operating system designed for web-surfing netbook users, it played a great game and even catered for Windows switchovers with an easy dual-boot routine from a Windows executable. Four magazine issues down the line, Jolicloud 1.0 is complete and it’s come a really long way – far enough to give Google’s ChromeOS development team something to think about.

You have your Windows in my Linux

I've seen many declarations of victory for systemd, now that Red Hat has forced it into the enterprise with the release of RHEL 7. I don't think it's that easy. Read more
