JoliCloud / JoliOS

An awesome cloud-based operating system, you can utilise this OS in many ways, including within a web browser or as your primary OS. I've been using it for a while and it's enabled me to keep all of my documents accessible and on a netbook it's the perfect OS, you can even use it in combination with Dropbox to keep everything in one place.

Below is an extract from wikipedia which explains what it is far more eloquently than I ever could:

Joli OS is an Ubuntu-based Linux operating system developed by the company Jolicloud. The operating system was itself called “Jolicloud” until version 1.2, when the company renamed it “Joli OS”.

Joli OS was at the beginning built on top of Ubuntu Netbook Edition,[10] and as with that Linux distribution, was tweaked for netbooks and other computers with limited disk storage,memory, and screen size.[11][12] Joli OS is now built on top of Ubuntu with a customized kernel.

Joli OS was designed for easy installation, with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 3G modem support all included.[13] The operating system supports all the major netbooks, including models from Asus, Acer, Dell, HP, MSI, Samsung and Sony.[14] Jolicloud claims the OS supports 98% of netbooks with out-of-the-box compatibility[15] but also works on a very large number of other devices, up to 10 years old: laptops, desktops and even tablets.[16]
