While there are plenty of folks working on netbook-specific operating systems (a la Google Chrome OS, Moblin Linux, and Eeebuntu), the Jolicloud team seems intent on ensuring that their OS works on every netbook in the known world. A few weeks ago the Jolicloud team announced it was working on support for netbooks with VIA C7-M and Intel Atom Pine Trail processors. Today Pine Trail support is official.

Current Jolicloud users can install the new version by performing a system update and rebooting their computers. New users can grab Jolicloud from the download page.

Jolicloud has added a number of new Pine Trail netbooks to its compatibility page, including the Lenovo IdeaPad S10-3, Asus Eee PC 1005PE, MSI Wind U135, and HP Mini 210. Oh yeah, and one of the coolest features? Jolicloud now supports 1080p HD video playback on netbooks with Pine Trail processors.

  1. Brad, the 1080p link is broken. And by pinetrail netbooks, do you mean ones with broadcom HD decoder or just plain vanilla pinetrail (which seems unlikely)? On their tech specs page, I see 720p on GMA500 based systems but no mention of pinetrail.

  2. Good to hear. Jolicloud is an amazing little OS! I just wish they’d add support for the touch screen on my T91MT. *sigh*
