Jolicloud Desktop, OS To Be Discontinued In December

Updates to the Jolicloud OS, based on Ubuntu 10.04, and the Jolicloud desktop environment, available for Ubuntu 12.04 and up through a PPA, will be discontinued in December of this year.

Both projects will remain open source and available at jolios.org.
