JoliCloud has been a long time coming, but you can finally download it today. It's a touchscreen-compatible, Linux-based operating system that promises that simplifies your netbook experience. It looks neat, boasts a 700-app directory—and it's totally free.
While the creep of "social" into every aspect of my sometimes leaves me clammy, JoliCloud seems like a good solution for those tired of the Windows experience on netbooks. Because it's an OS based in the cloud, you can automatically synchronize across multiple devices, and manage your interface from the cloud through any HTML5 browser. Give it a try here; I'm guessing it can't be worse than XP on an Aspire One. [JoliCloud]
