It's been a little while since we've heard any major news about Jolicloud, but it looks like the upstart, Linux-based OS is about to get a pretty significant upgrade -- the company has just announced that version 1.0 of the operating system will boast built-in support for touchscreens. That includes a whole array of standalone touchscreens and netbook displays (full list at the link below) and, as you can see in the brief demo video after the break, it certainly seems to be responsive enough when using Jolicloud's new HTML5 interface on a Samsung NB250 netbook.
