Jolicloud's OS Isn't Just Similar to Chrome OS--Looks Like It Will Run With It

Filed under
OS

The first netbooks based on Jolicloud are coming to market, ahead of Chrome OS-based ones.

Like Chrome OS, the Jolicloud OS is focused entirely on managing cloud-based applications as opposed to local ones (see the screenshot below). Its other similarity to Chrome OS is that it is squarely aimed at the netbook market. Jolicloud comes pre-loaded with avenues to numerous open source applications. And now, the first netbook based on Jolicloud's OS is announced.

The company had previously said that it would focus on low-priced netbooks able to play 720P video, with several USB ports. Now, it appears that the first Jolicloud netbook based on an Atom N550 chip will come with Google's open source Chrome OS Chromium core pre-loaded.

Distro Development: Rescatux and Bodhi

  • Rescatux 0.40 beta 9 released
    Many code in the grub side and in the windows registry side has been rewritten so that these new features could be rewritten. As a consequence it will be easier to maintain Rescapp. Finally the chntpw based options which modify the Windows registry now perform a backup of the Windows registry files in the unlikely case you want to undo some of the changes that Rescapp performs. I guess that in the future there will be a feature to be able to restore such backups from Rescapp itself, but, let’s focus on releasing an stable release. It’s been a while since the last one. UEFI feedback is still welcome. Specially if the Debian installation disks work for you but not the Rescatux ones.
  • Bodhi 4.0.0 Updates and July Donation Totals
    Late last month I posted a first alpha look at Bodhi 4.0.0. Work since then has been coming along slowly due to a few unpredictable issues and my own work schedule outside of Bodhi being hectic over the summer. Bodhi 4.0.0 will be happening, but likely not with a stable release until September. I am traveling again this weekend, but am hoping to get out a full alpha release with 32bit and non-PAE discs next week.
