Jolicloud, the company behind the OS that’s basically based in “The Cloud”, has released a new version of said operating system that brings more support to even older machines, meaning you can start to turn that old hunk of junk you’ve got sitting in your office under a pile of newspapers into something useful once again.
While the OS won’t allow you to get around the fact that the laptops of yesteryear tend to be on the hefty side, the new Jolicloud OS 1.1.1 OS, should, says the company, solve installation issues on legacy computers using older Nvidia graphic cards.
This means that if you have an old computer lying around, it is even more likely now that Jolicloud OS will run on it flawlessly; making the need to buy something like the Jolibook even more redundant.
The new graphics cards supported are:
- Support for Nvidia graphics cards 10+ years old including RIVA TNT/TNT2, Vanta, Aladdin and early Quadro and GeForce cards.
- Enhanced support for Nvidia graphics cards 5+ years old including early GeForce2/3/4, and Quadro2/4 generations.
- Enhanced support for Nvidia graphics cards 3+ years old including GeForce FX and Quadro FX.
The new Jolicloud OS 1.1.1 is available for download.
However, don’t expect it to work on everything. Jolicloud says you’ll need at least 384MB of system memory (RAM), or 512MB for better comfort to run Jolicloud OS.
