Joli OS, netbooking with cloud orientation

I have been trying out various operating systems for my netbooks, which by definition are rather under-powered devices. A new try is Joli OS, which is a “cloud oriented OS” in the sense that it has web app shortcuts on the desktop, next to local apps. Installation of various new services/apps is made very easy and most media run without any tweaking whatsoever, which is nice for a Linux based OS. The cloud integration does not run very deep atm, but you can access your desktop via Chrome browser from any computer, which is handy. They are also launching a new JoliCloud version soon, aiming to become a true “social computing platform”. For more, see:
