We’ve received hundreds of stories from people around the world who are dusting off old computers from their garages, turning them into cool Jolicloud computers, and using them as Internet browsing machines, family Skype boxes or donating them to schools. (Have a story about falling in love with your old computer again, using Jolicloud OS? Write us at firstname.lastname@example.org)
That’s why we’re dedicated to making Jolicloud OS compatible with all types of legacy hardware. Today, we released a new Jolicloud OS 1.1.1, an update which solves installation issues on legacy computers using older NVIDIA graphic cards.
This means that if you have an old computer lying around it is even more likely now that Jolicloud OS will run on it flawlessly. If you own an old Dell computer and had issues to install the 1.1, the new release should fix this.
Which new graphical cards are supported:
- Support for NVIDIA graphics cards 10+ years old including RIVA TNT/TNT2, Vanta, Aladdin and early Quadro and GeForce cards.
- Enhanced support for NVIDIA graphics cards 5+ years old including early GeForce2/3/4, and Quadro2/4 generations.
- Enhanced support for NVIDIA graphics cards 3+ years old including GeForce FX and Quadro FX.
Note you need at least 384MB of system memory (RAM), 512MB for better comfort to run Jolicloud OS.
