Jolicloud pre-beta release… is it worth a try?

Jolicloud pre-beta release came out a couple of days ago.  I am not sure whether I even want to bother with it.  It’s still built on Ubuntu Netbook Remix.  Apparently they’re not going to be releasing that for a little while yet.  I would give it a try – I’m curious about what the difference will be between alpha and beta.  Will there be support for the Atheros wireless driver in my Asus EEE1000HE?  Really, the main reason I didn’t stick with Jolicloud was because of the wireless issues.  But aside from that, it was pretty good.  Very easy to use, and, well, it looks nice.  Hmm.  Maybe curiosity is just going to get the better of me.  I might just have to try it out.  Boot it from USB at the very least.  One thing I’m happy about – no more invites!

After reading a few reviews, it doesn’t seem that a whole lot has changed.  They’re sort of making a big deal about the Windows installer.  I guess that’s cool, but it doesn’t apply to me.  My curiosity is definitely piqued now though.  Definitely going to give it a whirl.
