Jolicloud changes name and direction

The Jolicloud operating system--touted for its HTML 5 and cloud sync capabilities--will be known as Joli OS and Jolicloud will be used to refer to the online desktop.

Jolicloud will have a new name and direction, according to comments made yesterday by project founder Tariq Krim.

The Jolicloud operating system--touted for its HTML5 and cloud sync capabilities--will be known as Joli OS "to avoid confusion" and Jolicloud will be used to refer to the online desktop, Krim said in a blog post.

Despite the successes--which include 300,000 account registrations since August--of the Jolicloud desktop, Krim said it was imperative to "expand our experience beyond our own OS to be relevant on other platforms."
