A Look At Jolicloud, Cloud-Based Linux ComputingJolicloud is a Linux-based OS with an extremely clean UI that taps into the world of cloud computing, where you have access to your data, files and desktop, virtually anywhere you go. Anyone trying this relative newcomer OS might call it accessible because it has an extremely easy-to-use interface. Or, it could be called accessible in the sense that it's free and will run on minimal hardware. Or, it may be accessible because it integrates concepts familiar to social networking users directly into the main interface.

You get the idea, now let's take a quick look at this new Linux client that is making a splash in the market with cloud service-based computing.

Ah, my networking proff was talking about how this is possible... then he went nuts on subnetting and 3/4ths of the class, including me were drooling.

I wonder what google and chromeOS will turn/ churn out now.

On a different Note, TED App FTW

This has been out for a long time. I have it installed on an old Intel box. It's a little too simplistic for me, and I'm just not liking the cloud like I do my home built gamers.

It's a matter of preferences I guess,.......

EDIT: I'd like to add that this makes a good "Granny OS", or a good starter for someone that just needs basic PC and internet functions. There is hardly any learning curve associated with using it, and you don't need much of a PC to run it successfully either.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
