JoliCloud!

No, I haven't snapped and started babbling (much). JoliCloud is the name of a Linux distribution currently in alpha (read: pre-release) that I was invited to test :) It's got a really cool interface - a lot like the iPhone, and it's primary design is for Netbooks (small laptops like mine). It's a little buggy being such an early release, but overall it's good enough that I did install it alongside windows (I just wish I didn't have to deal with a bootloader [and that's not an important term to anyone not tech-savvy]. I've finally achieved computing nirvana - I'm using computers with Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows, and Linux, completing the trifecta! While I wish I could show you a lot more of JoliCloud, I'll leave you with a picture of it's desktop tonight, and a full review of it once I've managed to use it on a daily basis.
