A new direction for Jolicloud…

by Jolicloud Team

March 7th, 2011

Before our 1.2 upcoming release later this week, we wanted to share with you how things have been going so far and what’s next.

As you know, we started Jolicloud to create the best experience to enjoy the Internet. We looked around for the perfect OS to host that experience and we couldn’t find it, so we started to build our own OS.

Our mission was simple — to create the perfect OS for the modern Web. We were driven by three revolutionary principles:

  1. With Jolicloud you shouldn’t need to buy a new computer; it’s designed to make the most out of your existing ones.
  2. Jolicloud should deliver an exceptional user experience for free, making computing and navigating the Internet fun and easy.
  3. The Jolicloud user interface should synchronize to the cloud so your desktop would be accessible from anywhere, just by using a Web browser.

Since our 1.0 launch back in August, more than 300,000 of you have created a Jolicloud account. It seems that you enjoyed our selection of 1000+ apps because you have installed more than 3.5 million of them so far. We want to thank you for your feedback, as well as the thousands of emails, tweets and testimonials about how Jolicloud has transformed your computing life. All around the world we hear the stories of schools, companies, families and computer enthusiasts who have switched to Jolicloud.

Back in December, we introduced a Web only version of Jolicloud for the Chrome Web Store. That app has already reached 60,000 installs and is now among the top 40 most popular apps. This success has convinced us that we now have to expand our experience beyond our own OS to be relevant on other platforms.

Jolicloud will soon be available:

  1. As part of Joli OS. To avoid confusion, we have renamed our OS to “Joli OS” and will refer to our online desktop as Jolicloud.
  2. As a Web app. In addition to our availability on the Chrome Web Store, we will support Firefox 4, Safari 5 and the iPad (as an experimental HTML5 port).
  3. As an Android app (future). We are extremely excited by the potential of Jolicloud in the mobile space.

We will release new screenshots and details over the next days — so stay tuned!

      …and many people do not have other ‘machines’ so they don’t need to update their desktop from other places… I only have old mobile phone and one netbook at home and one windows pc at home.. so no need to update my jolicloud netbook from anywhere else…

    if it runs well and people like it as there main os (which i do) and they can then use the same interface on there other devices then that’s good but i just hope that this does not become the main focus of the os. the dev team should focus on improve performance on old and new hardware. and improve the interface. for example have right click options on the folder view and allow apps from local apps folder to be displayed on the main pages

This is all really exciting, particularly the Android app. A seamless desktop to mobile experience would be amazing. Great work guys ;)

Hope this will turn back to the 1.0 version.
1.0 Worked perfect on my eee701. But with 1.1 it’s nothing more then a brick with lights on. Dualboots xp now waiting for an update.

    This is strange, as 1.1 only added hardware support. Have you tried the new 1.1.1 release? It adds more graphics support.

      c’mon Zak….that dude’s comment is not ‘strange’ it is a known (and completely ignored) fact… 1.1 bricked and required an full reinstall for A LOT of users.

I use the most recent release and was very surprised at how great this bar is. A few problems I have met, but nothing serious. Sometimes fails to save Chromium + and – function. However a slightly annoying thing is this: When I will play for example a youtube movie, then click in the speakers, exactly the same sound as when, for example, putting on an amp when the volume is turned off. A (click or pop sound) I had this in the various Ubuntu distros I tested. But with, for example 10.10, then the problems disappeared. but the older it was the problem there. I hope this will disappear in the next version of OS Joli, if it be built on Ubuntu or 10.10?

I’m from Norway and use google transelator as The English are just not quite perfect in this.

    That being the case, I’ll alert the team to it. Maybe the issue can be eliminated with some package updates.

Before moving from Paris back to NYC I setup my grandma (70+ yrs old) on a dell netbook with jolicloud. Is this change going to be tough for her to make the transition??

Lets just say she’s intimidated by technology :-)

That being said, I’ve love to be able to access her desktop from the web to help trouble shoot her probs!

    Not at all! A simple update, and the interface has only been improved, not changed. Information on all of the added features will most likely be detailed in future blog posts.

An android app would be cool indeed. Many of Jolicloud users are Linux users, and those tend to use Android.
So Jolicloud, Please give the Android app more priority.

    We’re constantly testing Jolicloud on other browsers. Unfortunately, IE9 RC doesn’t support features like:
    -CSS3 Flexible Layout Module
    -CSS3 Text Shadow
    -CSS3 Gradients
    -CSS3 Border Image
    -Application Cache
    -File API

Please tell me that I’m dreaming, Jolicloud! Jolicloud, you are so good at what you are doing (creating a cloud OS), please just focus on that!

Why would you want to make an operating system inside another operation system? Why would you want Android users to run Jolicloud when they can do the same thing in…Android? Spreading out Jolicloud over a wide range of systems like this will only make development slower!

And I want to be truthful, I think you are mistaken on your thinking: people aren’t installing Jolicloud in Chrome Web Store because they use it in Chrome. No, they are installing it to tweak some stuff remotely on their home Jolicloud machines, or because they want to test it out before installing it!

I beg you as a loyal user, Jolicloud, to just focus on the Joli OS! Please heed my advice, and thank you for reading.

1.2 eh? Nice I’m really looking forward to it.

A year ago I abandoned Jolicloud – the Idea was nice but that was all. I thought Chrome OS would be the perfect Cloud System and I still think it’ll be nice. A couple of days ago I searched the web for all the new versions. As a matter of fact Chrome is still under development, that’s how I got back to Jolicloud.

Long story short – the idea of creating an OS that runs in another OS as a WebApp and is a full OS at the same time is quite innovative. I think I’ll give it a shot.


March 7, 2011
9:34 pm

Please when you release 1.2 give it to your faithful, your regulars first, weve been with you virtually from the start, yet on the release of 1.1 we were crapped on and had to wait, we were the last to get it (upgrade) weeks after everyone else, please jolicloud do the decent and right thing

Hi,

Currently loving the OS, you’re doing a great job :)

Just an annoying big bug i’d like to report:
- Last month, the whole thing suddenly became incredibly slow (the “home” screen, with the apps, not the apps themselves). It would take at least 30 seconds to change from the “apps” section to the “folders” section. I had to reinstall completely to make it work right again.

Other than that, great work! Can we hope for an update on the chrome browser? the 8.0 version starts to feel a bit dated compared to what I have on Windows.

Thanks ! (oh, and the ability to completely remove the usage of passwords would be great too! :) )

    This sounds like a graphics issue. If you reinstall (maybe once 1.2 comes out), you probably won’t see this issue anymore. Graphics was largely worked on for the 1.1.1 release.

I’m praying that updating from 1.1 to 1.2 will be a smooth process and won’t cause any problems :-) Otherwise I’m happy already with Jolicloud 1.1. If 1.2 solves the choppy audio and video playback I’ll be happy to upgrade! :-)

I agree that Jolicloud sounds fine already. Joli OS sounds a bit awkward and less fluent. Maybe call it Joli instead of Joli OS. Or Jolios? Or Jolicious? :-)

So you’ve “built” a “new OS” (over Ubuntu, right?) because you didn’t find one with a good experience to enjoy the web? Where did you search, exactly?

Hmm… sure it’s a new direction for Jolicloud : you’re starting to speak like marketing managers of huge companies :(

Want to talk about business model? Want to sell us something? Well, why not, just say it!

I love Jolicloud and like many of us, obviously, I hope you’ll keep the reasons why…

My two cents.

I have been enjoying Jolicloud since August 2009 and am a Founding Member. I think it is great that you are bringing old computers back to life. I am now running Jolicloud on my Eee 701 on an 8 gig SDHC card to give it more room and it runs beautifully. Also, version 1.1.1 now runs on my 8 year old Asus/AMD desktop with its Nvidia graphics card. Keep up the good work.

For everyone, my.jolicloud.com will run on any android device/os as long as you change your browsers UA string to something other than android. Works fine on my XOOM.

The gigantic thing I would love for Joli OS would be if it was *not* based on gnome. Anything more lightweight. Gnome as a browser based OS portal is like using a crane to hit a baseball when a bat(lxde, openbox,icewm, etc) would do just fine.

I loved it when you guys opted for slim instead of GDM. That, in my opinion, was the correct way to go. Now take it a step further and *get rid of gnome*.

I’m really liking Joli-ness guys. Great work. I use both the Joli OS (on my netbook) and the Jolicloud (on my desktop). While the Chrome app is nice, I feel like it has limited potential. It feels, to me, like a fancy bookmark aggregator, without the ability to create new bookmarks Can you share your vision or goals for iphone, ipad, or android applications?

How do you guys feel about focusing on Joli OS? Specifically, adding an even better suite of apps, and keeping performance blazing fast on even the most underpowered machines. There is also room for interface improvements.

Thanks for all the hard work! I look forward to JOS 1.2!

Tariq & company way to get everybody on the edge of their seats. ;) Really looking forward to the new OS update. Undecided on the name change & could care less about the other browser & device support. However, I’m most excited about the new HTML5 file system. Hopefully it integrates better with the cloud. Integrated Dropbox support would be great, but what would be ace is Pogoplug integration. That way I won’t have to rely on a 3rd party for my cloud storage. Keep up the great work & can’t wait to see what you have in store.

Wow! I didn’t expect all those whiners and complainers questioning their free lunch of the delicious JoliCloud! In fact, I was gonna ask you guys to put a PayPal donation function on your stuff so that I could help out a little.

I like JoliCloud well enough before, but when you added the legacy drivers for us nVidia fans it brought the HTPC back to life! I rarely have the laptop open a home now that I have my perfect HTPC platform; did you guys ever consider promoting J’Cloud as a possible Home Theater solution? …is that why you added the legacy drivers, for those of us who’ve cut the cord? (gotten rid of cable TV).

I saw the Batcave blog and the changes look so cool. The directions that you plan to go in are exactly what so many of us have been looking for. Of course, the scariest thing you’ve done is open up your intentions to the scrutiny for the unwashed masses to crap on in the comment section.

As an average teenager, I use my weak netbook for facebook and youtube. I have an ipod which is regularyly synced. apart from that, i dont do much.. I am writing a novel so i need a powerful word processor… i used windows 7 starter but after installing jolicloud, my computer seems to have turned over the leaf and start afresh. it actually WORKS. boot times, web browing, everything… just works… though my pc has problems with youtube video colours, there is a remedy for everything.. my only complaint would be itunes.. there is only one app for ipod syncing for jolicloud 1.1 (banshee)… and the only reason im keeping windowsb 7 is for itunes… CMON JOLICLOUD, HELP ME OUT WITH IPOD COMPATIBILITY!!!!

Google installing amarok14 on ubuntu and you’ll find tutorials. Otherwise use Rhythmbox it also works well and integrates into the new panel because it’s default in ubuntu. Rhythmbox is in the repos.

I’m a computer tech with 12+ years experience. I loaded Jolicloud 1.1.1 on my Asus 10.1 Eee PC 1.6 Atom notebook and it has been the best computing experience I’ve had in years. After working on computers all day I just want something simple I can use to access the Internet without any problems. If a website says it’s Windows only compatible than it’s a site you shouldn’t probably be on, their just looking for an easy back door into your system.

Local Dropbox folders are no more on 1.2. What happened? Maybe I need to remove and reinstall Dropbox app? Very annoying and slow trying to play music off web and load pdf’s individually.

The new os is terrible on my machine… I can’t access anything locally saved, Obviously I’m on the internet but the Chrome icon is locked out (faded) and when I click the ‘file browser’ it takes me to the tab but there is no ‘this device’ section most of my post installation apps are gone (brasero, banshee, etc) I thought that compatibility with the Acer AspireONE was improved, not downgraded. If I can’t fix this then I just lost 18 gigs of data.

    What Aspire One are you running? I had a similar issue with an AO521. None of my local apps would run after the update. I did a wipe and re-install on the base parition and it’s running now, but if you have data stored there, that’s not a good option. Hopefully Joli support will help you out…

How’s Jolicloud doing?…

Jolicloud is doing great, thanks! We have just released this week a new version of the Jolicloud desktop, our online product, as well as Joli OS 1.2, our operating system to turn any computer up to 10 years old into a cool new cloud device. I recommend…

OK, this is cool, I already liked Jolicloud but now it’s even better. This type of OS is the future I think. I love that Joli OS can run Boxee, I have been thinking of using Joli OS for my home theater PC. Now that Zinc.TV has moved to the cloud imagine the possibilities using it in conjunction Joli OS. Check this out.

    mkerrduid200 on March 1, 2011 @Cargo1273 And why is the Escalade worth $20,000 dollars more than a Naviagtor (im talking in Canada, may be different in USA). because up here, the price for a fully loaded Navigator is less than the base price of an Escalade, and more what?? A smoother ride?? i dont think so, the Navigator has IRS which makes it pretty freaking smooth altough if you choose the 20 rims it does reduce the ride quality a little bit as it would with all vehicles.

I just upgraded from 1.0 to 1.1. After syncing my apps I updated and no nothing works, just a dashbord with some apps bright and some dim and not working. I can’t get to a terminal to check things.
The best Jolicloud so far has been the pre-beta which runs flawlessly in my bosses Asus 101 still.
I dare not update it. Any ideas?

    Jehosh27 on October 20, 2011 Well, the ceontst is over now, but I think The Last Samurai would be great. You start off with a gun, and know next to nothing about swords. (how about the indian raid for the tutorial?) and as the game progresses, factions come into view, and you can side with whomever you want. Multiple, alternate endings, and even alternate fighting styles. Maybe Algren fights AGAINST the samurai at the end? it would be a very fun game, I think, especially if Bioware made it.

I’m wondering, how will the Jolicloud for Android work? I’m VERY VERY excited about this. Will it be a Launcher, like ADW, LauncherPro or Zeam, or will it be an actual app? As long as the Jolicloud apps don’t redirect you to the web browser, I’m fine with that.
(I have an Android device and I’m looking to buy an Android personal media player soon… I’d prefer a Launcher, but still, how will this work!!!?)

Often check out your pc’s complete method. I prefer to run verification immediately simply because they slow down your personal computer and could consider some time. Only when part of your pc method is apparently afflicted, it is possible to check the imagine component simply. If you’re by using a free of charge software, make certain the idea eradicates the adware and spyware it has determined. Many of these totally free applications may identify the particular threats however ask you to purchase the put in get because of it to take out chlamydia. I think these particular applications ought to be deleted and also exchanged by programs which may have total features.
