Jolicloud 1.1 review

That includes the manufacturer and model.

This is your home page. The applications on my page are not the default set. I have added a few since I signed up for the service. I was pleasantly surprised to find that Jolicloud (1.1) is touchscreen capable. On my Shuttle X50V2 computer, a single-touch all-in-one beauty, the touch screen feature worked perfectly. This makes Jolicloud the first desktop distribution that is touchscreen capable out of the box. Linpus Lite 1.4 is said to have some touch capability, but it did not work on this same computer when I tested it.

If you feel the default wallpaper is drab, Jolicloud offers several to choose from.

From my Account page, I can view a history of all my activities since I signed up for the service. I know them, Jolicloud knows them and now you know, too.

These are all the devices (computers) I have used to sign in to the service. One of them, by the way, is a virtual device. To be more specific, it was from an installation of Jolicloud 1.0 running on Virtualbox OSE. I can dissociate any device form the service.

Currently, I am not following any user on the Jolicloud system. And no other user is following me.

These are some of the top users on Jolicloud. I think I will follow Kelly Poon. Will she follow me?

  1. I like to try it. Thanks for the review.

  2. I agree with Wayne. This is not much of a review.

  3. Pretty funny, seemed more like a bashing. Wonder how many other sites and manufactures have the same language in their EULAs? I have tried both Jolicloud 1.1 and Ubuntu 10.10 but on different machines. I’m really impressed with the boot speed of Ubuntu. Now to be far I have to try Ubuntu 10.10 on a netbook.

  4. I built a USB, booted fine on HP laptop. But I have no Face Book account and I am not willing to create an account on their service just yet. ToS was a show stopper for me too.

    Other than that, it is a beautiful good system and has potential with those who are willing to use a service on a cloud. Not for me, I prefer KDE Plasma Netbook and I hope they create nice graphics similar to Jolicloud.

  5. That’s NOT a review. It is an article with pictures of the OS. A review by definition should explain what it’s like to use it, opinions about it, whether you might want to use it, etc.
    I can’t stand when people label something as a review and it is not one at all.

  8. Very informative review. Thanks.
    I was going to try Jolicloud, but their ToS was a real show stopper.
