Our last review of the Jolicloud 1.0 operating system was very appreciated, and we thought that it will be a very good idea to give you guys a glimpse into the next release, Jolicloud 1.1, which will be available for download/upgrade in November 2010.
The Jolicloud team was kind enough to give us access to an exclusive preview of the upcoming Jolicloud 1.1 operating system for netbooks. As usual, we've tested this first preview of Jolicloud 1.1 on our netbook.
Jolicloud 1.1 will feature a Linux kernel 188.8.131.52, which provides faster boot/resume/suspend functionality, the latest drivers for video and sound cards, webcams, or Wi-Fi cards, out-of-the-box support for Broadcom, Poulsbo and Nvidia hardware components (yes, that means you won't have to manually install any drivers or modules).
