Jolicloud, once only a cloud-focused Linux distro for netbooks
, has been re-branded as Joli OS
. The company's focus has shifted slightly, though the goal is still to provide access to a fun, easy-to-use Internet experience. In addition to offering the OS itself, the Joli "cloud" portion will become a Web-based launchpad which users can install in Google Chrome
(already available), Safari, Firefox, and even on the iPad.
The company has also announced a set of changes in the Joli OS 1.2 update
, which brings an integrated file browser, an automatic Jolicloud login option, and Guest mode -- for those times when you want to let a friend take your Joli OS-powered notebook for a spin.
