Jolicloud runs on Dell Inspiron Duo

Filed under
Linux

The Dell Inspiron Duo is a convertible tablet style netbook with a 1.5 GHz Intel Atom Dual core processor, 10 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel capacitive touchscreen display, and an unusual design that lets you rotate the screen for use in tablet mode without relying on a swiveling mechanism that feels like it’s going to break off at any moment. But reviewers haven’t been all that impressed with the custom touchscreen software Dell bundles with the netbook.

Enter Jolicloud.

Jolicloud is a Linux-based operating system originally designed specifically for netbooks, so it’s optimized to play well with Intel Atom chips.
