Okay so after using it more... I realised I was totaly wrong in saying that.

I think it's better than the netbook remix of Ubuntu - the base interface / desktop may look similar, but it's not a 'theme' or 'skin' ontop of the usual ubuntu desktop - like the remix.

Also, I was reading that come Alpha 3 (currently upto 2b), the whole interface will look like the jolicloud app. / web portal thing, and lose the UNR look. Which means the installed OS will flow seamlessly into the Jolicloud.

So don't let my initial thoughts turn you off it - it's a very usable OS.
