Joli OS and Jolicloud Desktop Environment to be discontinued

Joli OS and Jolicloud Desktop Environment will no longer be supported after December 31 2013.

That, for Jolicloud users, is the bad news from the Paris, France-based Jolicloud team. The good news is that dropping Joli OS and Jolicloud Desktop Environment will enable the Jolicloud team to focus on Jolicloud 2, the next-generation version of Jolicloud which the team is about to release.

Jolicloud is based on Ubuntu, but with an HTML5 interface, which means it is accessible from any HTML5 browser.

The complete text of the email from the Jolicloud team follows:

After years of building the best independent cloud OS, it’s time for us to entirely focus on the web with Jolicloud 2.

For this to be possible, we have taken the decision to discontinue the development of Joli OS and Jolicloud Desktop Environment for now. From the 31st of December 2013, Joli OS and Jolicloud Desktop Environment will no longer be supported, or receive any updates. However, you will still be able to use them in their current state, and have access to your app launcher on Jolicloud 2. Both projects will remain open source and available at jolios.org.

Remember: Jolicloud 2 is a full web experience. All you need is Chrome or any modern browser.

Thank you for being a pioneer and your amazing support! We’re looking forward to seeing you on Jolicloud 2 from your favorite device!

  1. I liked the Joli OS. I don’t like the cloud, as it is not the same as the desktop app and lacks in continuity.
