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.

Debian Forked: All for Devuan and Devuan for All?

It is hard to see the direction Devuan will take, given that the project is still in its early days. The new community could create a shallow derivative, or it could fork the entire Debian archive. Another option is to try replacing Debian entirely and become a new gateway between upstream projects and users of all packages, which would require a lot more manpower and infrastructure. Read more
