Joli OS 1.2 Linux by Jolicloud

Filed under
Linux

With the launch of the Chromebook, a new breed of cut-price laptop running Google's Chrome OS software, the interest in so-called 'cloud computing' has never been higher. It's easy to forget, however, that before Google came along, there were other companies offering remarkably similar software packages that can be installed - for free, even - on existing hardware.

Jolicloud, founded back in 2008 by Tariq Krim and now the parent company of the Joli OS distribution, is one of the most well-known desktop 'cloud' companies around. Designed as a spin-off of the popular Ubuntu Linux distribution, Joli OS has grown into a popular alternative to Google's Chrome OS, and recently hit a major milestone in its history with the launch of Jolibook netbooks featuring the software pre-installed.

It's a powerful package, but it's not for everyone. We take a look at the pros and cons of making the leap to a cloud-based desktop operating system.
