Hi Nic!

I used Joli OS back when it was still the main Jolicloud offering, and I liked it. It still had some of the typical Linux problems, like getting it to work with your wireless networking hardware, and it was a bit temperamental here and there, but it was blazingly fast, and is apparently much improved.

I hear you on wanting to be able to use the native apps you like — I thought that there was a way to install Firefox on Joli OS? Are you still locked out of the repository?
