Joli OS is being discontinued

Joli OS is being discontinued.

That the latest news about Joli OS, a desktop distribution that has since been replaced with a browser-based platform called Jolicloud. Both Joli OS and Jolicloud are published by a French company that goes by the name Jolicloud.

Jolicloud 2 is the latest edition of Jolicloud, but it is still in beta status.

The full text of the discontinuation announcement is posted below:

Over the last 5 years Jolicloud has become the largest personal cloud platform in the world.

Our journey started with Joli OS, our first product, a free operating system designed to connect low cost computers to the cloud, and downloaded more than 5 million times around the planet.

Joli OS introduced a new kind of interface created by combining data from multiple clouds in one place. From storage to photos, music or productivity Jolicloud invented a new way to access and enjoy our content.
We called it “personal cloud” because we believe that all this content spread across the Internet belongs to you. That all this data is part of your life. Part of you.

It is now time to take another step in that advancement. Where a full OS was once needed, now you just need a browser to access the full potential of Jolicloud. That’s why Joli OS is being discontinued and will no longer be officially supported. You can check our FAQ for more details.

In a few days, we will announce our first app as part of the new Jolicloud platform and we want you to be one of the first to give it a try.

Jolicloud

I’m not really a big fan of Jolicloud, but I’m looking forward to what the company will announce next anyway.
