This is just to say I have installed JoliOS on my computer and writing through Google’s Chrome.
It Looks pretty fast unlike my work horse PCLinuxFullMonty which is temporarily out of commission since JoliCloud could not boot up my Linux since it made a hash of my boot loader.I have to reinstall PCLinuxFullMonty TWICE which was bit of a hassle.
Fortunately, I copied all the downloads to my laptop (which is defunct due to battery failure) hard disk already removed and the laptop now resting in the attic, so to speak.
JoliCloud has to work on the Boot loader to satisfy me.
It must beef up its security protocols too.
Overall its performance is as good as any Cloud Service.
Thank you for electing me as a founder member.
Please note the following points in addition.
1. Do not install it on the laptop or desktop till they get a good boot loader.
2. If you are Linux guy or girl use UnetBootIn (which I have described adequately under CloudUSB (Ubuntu 10.04).
One does not need a password if you use UnetBootIn.
3. My cloudUSB stick with a password still works but it gets to its old web site, instead of http://www.myjolicloud.com.
4. All what you have to do is to go to www,myjolicloud.com and sign up.
5. If you have already signed up just log in.
6. It seamlessly integrates with your email address and all the blog posts.
Thank you JoliCloud for doing this.
I have forgotten some of them already.
Initially it integrated with dropbox without me logging into dropbox.
I actually have forgotten the password for dropbox.
When they (dropbox changed its initial contract agreement, I stopped using dropbox) made changes to the initial contract I was hesitant to trust them.
7. I am annoyed with Facebook’s nosiness and I deleted it from my page.
8. Make sure you have a powerful password for the EMAIL.
If you have sensitive data make sure when you install Linux encrypt at least your home partition.
I have no sensitive but painful data for Microsoft, so I do not encrypt my home folder.
Any Microsoft Guy / Girl can browse it, if they know how to do that but I will track them with Kali the dangerous Devil Queen of Folklore.
Problem with Linux including CloudOS is that they can see or mount, root (not the sexual rooting or mounting of animal) or load any partition of Microsoft and Linux at lib.
Linux is a dangerous animal to deal with including Google’s Android.
Unfortunately digital Andoid does not have male hormones for sexual activity.
I think the one who coined this word would have been impotent sexually by default.
One need not be fully potent to enjoy Linux FREEDOM in a modern Unisex Digital World.
Sex is not a barrier to use Linux but fortunately it is dominated by males who have extra hormones but one less or dysfunctional chromosome.
If you love anonymity try tails or anonymous.
9. Then register with the Help Center and ask for the applications you prefer.
I asked for AbiWord and LibreOffice which I have not yet got.
10. Do not be paranoid with a password for the USB Key since you may give it to your friends to boot with it.
One does not need to download CloudOS.
11. I am extremely unhappy since the EyeOS which had all the tiny utilities is hijacked by a Spanish Company, I believe and they do not let you log in.
I had a log in password with them before this was taken over by a company.
EyeOS is the tiniest cloud utility and I still have a CD of it.
I may post it (image) in a public folder for others to copy since it was mainly Open Source.
My only problem is like that of the Email, when I KICK the Bucket or when I expire either due to old age or faulty memory who will look after my CLOUDs of Clouds of OLD Age.
I will have this sorted out with the Maha Brahma, who is the chief of all the Eastern (not Western or Muslim gods) GODS.
Joli Clouding to ALL!
This is posted by booting with a USB stick.
I will certainly take all my USB sticks to be interned with me on a sealed blackbox when I EXIT properly from this planet/world for the computer guys / girls of the next century see that their was mad Guy by the name XiT.
Joli OS and JoliCloud.
I am not going to try it on a windows since I do not use Windows.
Making a Flash drive is bit messy.
I would use my net booting utility instead of their USB Creator.
In fact Linux sh file is dysfunctional with lot of garbage.
One may use the USB Key to boot up or use the USB Key to install it on the hard drive partition.
Computer BIOS should let you boot up from the Flash Drive and an old BIOS may not have this option.
Sign up with their Help Centre and follow the instructions.
I have forgotten where I have kept my USB Key.
I finally found it having booted about 20 USB sticks with various Live Linux distribution in them.
I rarely use USBs now.
Why use them when I have many computers with many Linux derivatives running including Ubuntu 12.04.
