Hey Joli users! Some good news was recently put on the Jolicloud Blog: Jolicloud - Blog
The new pre-beta release is coming! No more invitation codes to deal with either. See the blog post for all the information on changes and innovations coming to Joli. The OS continues to run smoothly on my mini 9, and I am really looking forward to a move away from the UNR look in future updates.
EDIT: It appears that we won't have to re-download Joli and make a new LiveUSB. It seems that the updater will do it all by itself. Nice.

Beta available without invitation! - 12-11-2009, 10:55 PM
"After months of private alpha testing, the folks at Jolicloud have launched a public beta version of the netbook operating system called Jolicloud Express. In other words, anyone can download and install it now. You donâ€™t need an invitation."

I have Jolicloud running on my mini-10 and am pleased that GMA500 graphics works now.
I was having a problem with Jolicloud USB Creator in Windows and the ISO I downloaded.
Every time I tried to "copy" the ISO to a stick using the USB creator, it gave me an error: "disk contents corrupted"
I tried several times with different SD cards in the stick. I even uninstalled Jolicloud USB Creator and installed a later version (1.2.1).
I still got the corruption error after writing and testing.
Finally I copied the ISO to a Linux partition and used the second Linux method shown on this page at Jolicloud.
The first Linux method on this page resulted in some unmet dependencies.

I also installed Jolicloud on my mini 12. It is simply amazing. So sleek and efficient. The Wine part is cool too, adding the possibility to run many (but not all) Windows apps.
I greatly encourage everyone to try it. It worth the time to download and install it.
If we experience issues, the Get Satisfaction board is very useful. Everyone is ready to help.
