Jolicloud is a Linux-based operating system that is currently in development and Pre-Final testing. The project was founded in 2008 by Tariq Krim who is based in Paris, France. Jolicloud is built upon Debian and Ubuntu 9.10, but is tweaked to be more suitable for computers that have weaker specifications in terms of disk storage, memory and screen size, like netbook computers. Jolicloud relies heavily on Chromium-based packages for running web-based applications. For Windows-only products it uses Wine.
Switching OS has never been so easy. In less than 15 minutes you will enjoy Jolicloud alongside your old Windows and all your data will be perfectly safe. Jolicloud brings all the benefits of cloud computing today, making your netbook the natural extension of all your other computers and mobile devices. It has been designed to make sure you can connect and collaborate efficiently, and easily share with your Facebook friends and other Joliclouders. With Jolicloud, you are connected anytime, anywhere.

The very useful feature which I found while using this OS is it is pretty simple to connect to 3g network. Many people now a days are using wireless internet like Reliance netconnect or Tata photon. In other OS like ubuntu or suse, it is very difficult to configure such wireless modems. It takes considerable amount of time. But in Jolicloud it is pretty simple. The modem software is preinstalled. So when you plugin the modem to a usb that’s it you are ready to go online.
It is meant to boot quickly, and be very easy to install. Jolicloud supports all the major netbooks from suppliers such as Asus, Acer, Dell, HP, MSI and Samsung. Jolicloud claims that its Jolicloud OS supports 98% of netbooks with out-of-the-box compatibility by now.
