Jolicloud- A Cloud-Based Linux distribution with the brand new HTML 5 desktop

Jolicloud is an Ubuntu-based Linux distribution for netbooks. It is geared towards extreme user-friendliness so that any computer user can install it with just one click. Besides the standard ISO image, the distribution is also provided as a Windows executable file which can resize an existing Windows partition and install Jolicloud as an alternative operating system. Other Jolicloud features include heavy orientation towards web application and services, online backup option, web-based software installation interface, inclusion of proprietary hardware drivers and non-free media codecs, and extensive social networking features.

    Oooh look at me! I put the work "cloud" on my desktop. Now all those suckers that don’t understand the risks of leaving all of their personal data in the "cloud" will get burned.

    Some time before, I did need to buy a house for my corporation but I did not have enough cash and could not order anything. Thank God my colleague proposed to take the home loans at creditors. So, I acted so and used to be happy with my car loan.

    If you want to buy a house, you will have to receive the credit loans. Moreover, my brother always uses a bank loan, which occurs to be the most fast.
