Checking out the Jolicloud Netbook OS

,----[ Quote ]
| That may, actually, be exactly what is needed to bring the concepts of Ubuntu
| Netbook Remix to the masses. It’s too early to tell, but Jolicloud looks like
| it has a chance of being one of the first Linux-based netbook distros to take
| off, if they can get deals with hardware manufacturers.

Hands-On Review Of Jolicloud, The iPhonesque OS For Netbooks

,----[ Quote ]
| Founder and former CEO of Netvibes Tariq Krim is moving forward with his
| ambitious Jolicloud project, looking to build a better operating system for
| web workers with netbooks (or smartbooks or cloud computers, whichever term
| you prefer). A couple of days ago, we got a couple of exclusive screenshots
| from the team, and just a day after the startup started sending out a handful
| of invite codes for early adopters who wanted to get a peak at the alpha
| developer release. I also got hold of one and have been using Jolicloud on my
| Acer Aspire ONE for about four days now. These are my initial findings.

More evidence of Microsoft "tying up" the Asus EeePC

,----[ Quote ]
| Then, one of the makers of Netbooks will release a fantastic product using
| the paid Ubuntu/Netbook Remix, which will make us all forget about the EeePC
| — or, maybe we’ll remember it as one of the makers which used GNU/Linux in
| order to launch a product, and then gave in to Microsoft’s pressure.
|
| The real question is: will the next maker manage to resist Microsoft’s
| pressure? Or will everybody end up closely tied up with Microsoft?

Read on! `---- http://www.webupd8.org/2010/01/revlin-os-would-you-use-it.html A Round of Thoughts ,----[ Quote ] | RevLin OS sounds promising. It may be the bit | of "new" that the *nix world needs, and it | may wake all the freetards up. Essentially, | it's a reworking of the Linux kernel that | keeps the driver framework, and has the same | system calls. This makes it binary compatible | with Linux, while not suffering from the size | and complexity issues of Linux (or so we hope | since it hasn't been released yet). | Currently, it is unclear whether or not this | monster will use X11 or some other display | framework, but we know that the GUI can be | scripted with JS, HTML, and CSS. This would | no doubt start a flurry of distro building by | the FOSS community, and within a year or so | someone would have RevLin running his | toaster. `---- http://elevenislouder.blogspot.com/2010/01/round-of-thoughts.html Recent: Interview: Chrome OS Zero’s...
