Joli OS 1.2 Review: Is it the Best Linux Distro Available for Netbooks?

Jul 30, 2011, 22:01 (3 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to kiterunner for this link. ]

"In every other Linux distro we have reviewed so far, the easiest part has always been the installation, not so with the Joli OS though. Installation steps are almost the same that you see while installing Ubuntu, but time it took for the installation to complete surprised me. It was well over 30 minutes. I didn't expected that from a supposedly 'light' Ubuntu based OS.

"The next surprise was the boot time. I have installed Joli OS as a dual boot with Ping-Eee OS. I was expecting that, I could at the very least use Joli OS as a quick boot OS dedicated to browsing the web and for everything else I could use Ping-Eee OS. But the amount of time it took for the OS to boot was between 30-45 seconds! And it happened not just the first time, but every single time. If Joli OS really aspire to become the best OS for netbooks one day, they really need to work on their boot process."
