It seems that everyone wants to get into Cloud computing these days; there’s Google’s Chrome OS, iCloud and a longtime cloud computing operating system named Jolicloud.
We’ve already talked about how you can have a cloud based computer for free with iCloud. Now I want to share another player in cloud computing market Jolicloud. With Jolicloud, you can have all the benefits of cloud computing; making your netbook the natural extension of all your other computers and mobile devices.
Just like on your main computer, with Jolicloud, you can enjoy using a combination of your favorite web apps, packaged for a full screen experience and other popular native apps. Jolicloud is a Linux based system, which is designed to be installed onto existing netbooks without much hassle. You can even install it to your computer from inside Windows and keep it alongside your existing installation.
Jolicloud is different from traditional OS in that it was built for netbook users to leverage the cloud and it introduces new ideas to make your life easier.
Jolicloud has been designed to make sure you can connect and collaborate efficiently. Connect and share easily with your Facebook friends and other Joliclouders. With Jolicloud the downloading and installation of apps is combined so you just click on an app and it’s ready to go in one click.
