Linux

Joli OS 1.2 is a very interesting project. It is basically an Ubuntu based Linux distro optimized to work in netbooks and other older computer hardware.

Joli OS 1.2 Review - Installation and Booting

In every other Linux distro we have reviewed so far, the easiest part has always been the installation, not so with the Joli OS though. Installation steps are almost the same that you see while installing Ubuntu, but time it took for the installation to complete surprised me. It was well over 30 minutes.

The next surprise was the boot time.
