The folks at Jolicloud have released Jolicloud Alpha 2, their second alpha release. Though, only a small batch of invitations have been sent out, I assume.
If you have a netbook with GMA 500 graphics, then you are out of luck. So the population of people out there with Dell Mini 10, Acer Aspire One 751s, Sony Vaio Ps, ASUS Eee PC 1101HAs, MSI Wind U115s, ASUS Eee PC S121s etc are out of luck, for now at least.
The Jolicloud crew are looking for support from programmers, developers and if you have a cool app that is great for netbooks, let them know.
Jolicloud is an Internet operating system. It combines the two driving forces of the modern computing industry: the open source and the open web.
Jolicloud transforms your netbook into a sophisticated web device that taps into the cloud to expand your computing possibilities. The web already hosts a significant part of our lives: mails, photos, videos, and friends are already somewhere online. Jolicloud was built to make the computer and web part of the same experience.
The online world is taking processing power away from our computers, so we won’t need expensive machines in the future. The web improves itself, so we don’t need to replace machines all the time to be able to run newer versions of operating systems or office suites.
