"Cloud-based netbook OS Jolicloud 1.0 was released
yesterday, allowing users to install the OS alongside Windows or as
a standalone OS via USB key. The project was started by Netvibes
founder Tariq Krim.
"Jolicloud is based on Ubuntu, but is designed with netbooks in
mind. This means that many of the programs deployed within
Jolicloud are actually Web apps. It's possible to store files
locally, but cloud backup is offered as well."
