Jolicloud users, get ready for an HTML5 User Interface
By on July 18th, 2010

Jolicloud is a popular Ubuntu Netbook Remix fork and takes things a step further up by creating an awesome UI based on HTML5.  HTML5 has extensive support for creating awesome apps and the new launcher in Jolicloud, version 1.0 has been created completely in HTML5.

Jolicloud has come a long way and has released remarkable distros with the release of each of Ubuntu Netbook Remix. This time though, they are going for cloud storage and synchronization across all machines on which Jolicloud is installed. This makes installing apps, an install once and use anywhere phenomenon. Equally, files can be shared using Dropbox and other file sharing services.

The app center has over 700 apps for you to check out. Moreover, it comes pre-installed with apps for Gmail, Skype, Twitter and Firefox. This makes Jolicloud a better Netbook OS. The updates should start rolling out next week.
