While the Google Chrome Operating System due out later this year is designed to provide quick and easy access to web-based applications, that’s exactly what Jolicloud offers today (plus the ability to run desktop Linux apps). While the operating system is still available only to a small group of testers, development is coming along. This week Jolicloud released Alpha 2b, which is a minor update on the recently launched Jolicloud Alpha 2.
The update includes an improved search engine, an easier way to upload pictures to your Jolicloud profile, and overall improved responsiveness. There aer also new applications available including music streaming service Deezer and desktop media player Moovida.
They had better hurry, they are running out of time to get market share…
Downloading it now but I expect that the chances
it will run on my VIA hardware are between slim and none. 😉
Surprise, surprise, it does boot and run on VIA hardware – –
It gives a “I don’t know what this cpu thing is, this may not work”
type of message – but it does run, and with graphic acceleration. (at least 2D).
That is on an 800×480 display Cloudbook.
