Jolicloud is an operating system (like Windows XP or Windows 7), but it is a Linux based, and it is designed for netbooks. I have always wanted to install Linux on my machine since 2007 (where my first time met Ubuntu). But software compatibility and usage hold me back from using Linux.
I bought my netbook for internet surfing and social networking and that’s the reason why I choose Jolicloud. It is lightweight and suitable with the low-specs netbook. The applications can maximize the viewing area in my small netbook screen resolution (1024×600).
If you have a netbook, you should try and consider to use Jolicloud as an additional OS because there’s no harm in trying something new. Plus I don’t have to worry about virus, spyware and malware for now.
I still can switch back to Windows XP whenever I want, but with Jolicloud, everything is a snap! Actually, there is not much different with using XP, but its a free and that makes me feel good. I hope that they can improve the speed especially when I open few tabs in Firefox.
