Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Jolicloud, the company that offers a cloud-centric Linux distro for netbooks, is getting into the hardware business.

It will begin selling the Jolibook later this month. Jolibook appears to be a standard netbook with a dual-core Intel Atom N550 processor, according to the little Jolicloud has said about the spec.

Which includes a 250GB hard drive, by the way - an oddly large storage capacity, you might think, for an machine that runs an OS "designed for people who live in the cloud".

The Jolibook will come pre-loaded with the as-yet-unreleased Jolicloud 1.1, itself derived from Ubuntu and designed to connect you to Skype, Facebook, Spotify and so on.

There's no word yet on how much the Jolibook will cost, but since the company notes that "computers are now becoming cheaper than mobile phones and MP3 players", we hope it'll be as cheap as chips.

Being open source, you can download Jolicloud 1.0 now, for free, to install or run off a live CD or USB drive. ®
