It does not matter what you

It does not matter what you choose. If you would install Ubuntu and you would choose Fedora from the list it would not matter. The choice of operating system in the list is only for the amount of memory to be assigned, which you can change yourself any way and for showing a nice icon perhaps, that is all. Choose which ever you prefer from the list... Zetaclear

"Most of the school-related

"Most of the school-related work that they need to do can be done within Jolicloud, and that might reduce some of the temptation to play games when they should be doing their schoolwork. Being able to boot in to Vista to play graphics-intensive games then could be used as a reward for finishing homework on time."
-my exact reason for transition into linux... being in college has even more temptation, and linux somehow reduced that. *wink wink*
nice review and I like the idea of cloud computing, synchronization etc.. especially in today's mobile world..

Nice review

I really liked your review. It's only a little outdated now that Joli OS 1.2 is available. But definitely still relevant for people who haven't tried out Jolicloud yet. I encourage those people to give it whirl. Mr. Diehl I look forward to a follow-up review based on the latest version. I think you'll find that a few of your concerns have been fixed or improved.

Linux Management with Red Hat Satellite: Measuring Business Impact and ROI

Linux is being used to deploy business applications and databases, trading on its reputation as a low-cost operating environment. For many IT organizations, Linux is a mainstay for deploying Web servers and has evolved from handling basic file, print, and utility workloads to running mission-critical applications and databases, physically, virtually, and in the cloud. As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

White Paper
Private PaaS for the Agile Enterprise

If you already use virtualized infrastructure, you are well on your way to leveraging the power of the cloud. Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale? In today’s hypercompetitive markets, fast results can make a difference between leading the pack vs. obsolescence. Organizations need more benefits from cloud computing than just raw resources. They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
