The hunt for a new netbook Operating System (OS) is sure a frustrating one. Some of the lower range netbooks struggle to operate even with Windows 7 Starter edition. Well the good news is that keeping cloud computing in mind, a number of OS have been designed to compute efficiently. Google’s Chrome OS was the one to set the trend. Linux Distros wasn’t far behind with many OS coming out tailored especially for netbooks. Read on, to find out about some of the better alternative OS’s for a smooth netbook experience.
Jolicloud is a Linux powered netbook OS which emphasizes more on flair than performance. At around 600MB it is not exactly light weight but then it does have the looks to make up for it. The netbook is glossy colored and filled with icons on a jet black background, which gives it a sleek phone interface look.
It can be booted from a flash drive or can be run as a live OS from USB drive. Booting and loading of the user interface (UI) takes a lot f time. However, the performance of the netbook is pretty good. Jolicloud is not only a cloud based OS, there are applications available by default and many more can be installed for which there is a built in installer for this purpose. There are web based add-ons too. Using them could make social networking fun. Accessing your Facebook and Twitter accounts are as simple as opening an IM client.
Jolicloud is a fun and interactive OS as compared to Windows. Moreover, it is lighter on resources. It wouldn’t take much time for anyone to get used to it.
Backed by Intel as the base OS for the Intel Atom platform, Moblin is a unique operating system. It does not resemble Linux or Windows but possesses its own distinct look. Installation is breezy and the booting up too is pretty quick. There is a multifunction panel at the top of the screen with quick links to things like connectivity, settings, applications etc. The panel also has the auto hide feature giving users respite from cramped up screens. Functionality is where Moblin scores big as it provides support for most of the netbooks by default.
At 64MB this “distro” is one of the lightest OS available for netbooks. It opens up to a lucid four menu UI with no frills. Everything is pretty basic, including the programs available. Pre installed programs are kept to a bare minimum to keep the download size small. This is an OS for those who do nothing much but browse, chat and occasionally watch a few videos.
Though all the netbook OS are pretty much lightweight to use, I would recommend you to pick to suit your needs. While Jolicloud and Ubuntu Netbook Remix are for the regular user who would prefer something different and light, Xpud is the champion of all the lightweight OS. Moblin would fit in somewhere in between with a balance between functionality and lightweight.
Ubuntu Netbook Remix
Ubuntu netbook Remix retains the essence of the traditional Ubuntu while having a layout of other netbook OS’s. It simply a lighter version of Ubuntu fine tuned for easy operability on netbooks. Installation is same as the standard Ubuntu.
Customizing your installation is pretty simple with all the settings available in one place. Just like Jolicloud, Ubuntu netbook Remix supports storing files on the local drives other than using the cloud. Users can also register for Cloud One. Cloud One is online cloud storage space offered by Ubuntu. As is the case with Ubuntu, there are loads of applications available.
