Jolicloud netbook on the cards, says founder
Of course, we all know about the Jolicloud operating system, which is a Linux-based operating system or a Linux distro as you would like to call it. And now, in a recent development, Jolicloud founder Tariq Krim has given life to the rumors by announcing that a Jolicloud branded netbook is indeed under development; a few related pictures have also been shared on Twitter.
No details regarding the specifications of the netbook, pricing or availability have yet been disclosed, but one can surely assume that the ultraportable will run the company’s proprietary operating system. Talking of the Jolicloud OS, for those who are not familiar with this latest software, it boasts of a custom UI which provides a truly unique experience. It lets you install and use web apps such as “Facebook” or “Twitter” as easily as your usual desktop apps. In addition, Jolicloud users get to save their settings online being a cloud based OS, and thus letting users to login from any machine and manage these settings easily. Offering such flexibility and ease of use, the OS is fast catching up with netbook users, and we definitely hope that the Jolicloud netbook too will create the same magic amongst users.
Jolicloud, for long, concentrated on being one of those rare netbook-optimized operating system manufacturers that understood the need of a platform that runs smoothly on top of a less capable processor – apart from being able to squeeze all in one much smaller screen.
