Ofcourse, any cloud operating system requires internet connectivity to login and manage your space and applications configured in it. It also offers the users to sign in to any of the computer in which Jolicloud is installed and they can use it as their home machine.

    1. Thank you for your comments Priya..While using USB it was like using a live CD for an OS, so you can boot from the USB and it doesn’t requires any space from the hard disk.

  1. Hi Prakash!

    I have an HP mini with win7starter OS. I want to replace it with Jolicloud. I downloaded Jolicloud installer in a USB but could not get past the part where I create the USB key. The “target device” cannot be read. How do I install Jolicloud then?

    Many thanks and best regards!


  2. This OS sucks. You have to sign on to Jolicloud servers to use the apps. Why do I have to sign on to the internet (jolicloud servers) to use my netbook ? I would not consider this a secure OS. Any one who says this is a great OS…. works for Jolicloud.

    1. The reason behind cloud computing is that rather than use the little amount of processor performance on your machine you use the servers instead, Resulting in fast, Anywhere accessible information. I love it My netbook never this fast yet with Windows 7 Dual Booted For Programs.
      Thanks Jolicloud
