Right, got it running on this eeepc 701, via our guest wireless which has transparent proxying. Don't know why the wireless didn't work on my first install.
Now it is asking me to sign up to Jolicloud.
So, basically, it isn't really suited to school owned equipment use - it is aimed at individuals - it even offers to link to facebook, which is obviously a no-go.
You're right about the Facebook login - not something we'd really want to encourage in schools.
But for individual use, I still maintain that it registers about 40 Megafonzies on the coolness scale.
A cloudy, but less Facebooky, web centric lightweight OS (what a mouthful) might be PeppermintOS Peppermint OS
Hmph, just installed it and no wireless, the proxy server also blocks the web adress too.... how do you get to the console? :confused2:
Our proxies block all of the facebook / twitter / games apps, so am looking at it here.
How do you get to the console when you can't get past your proxy and get online?
Alt+F2, then gnome-terminal
My other half has been using Joli OS for about 7 - 8 months now and she loves it. She uses it mainly for surfing the net. It's installed on an Old HP laptop. She always hated waiting for things to load, with Joli OS you click on Chrome and it opens more or less instantly... brilliant. New version coming out soon too.
Tested it last night and works fine most of the time, couple of times the page timed out but that is due to my internet connection. It didn't really seem any faster than my other pc tbh. Might work better with a decent intenet connection.
