Tariq Krim's app-based cloud OS has been a long time coming
, but it's finally freely available for download -- just grab a 16MB installer and you too can join the Jolicloud
. We've been impressed more than once by the responsive netbook operating system which can boot in seconds flat, and now that it's got touchscreen support
and a streamlined Windows dual-boot installer all for the bargain price of free, it's definitely worth a try. Give it a spin at our more coverage link, and let us know if it improves your life in any meaningful fashion. If your keyboard is inexorably intertwined with Windows, however, don't fret; a little penguin tells us a tablet PC version is also on the way.
