We don't officially support Hardy. Someone could potentially try to backport, but the Ubuntu One team supports 9.04 and up.

Thank you,

Maybe you/they should considering 8.04 is an LTS and well the new ubuntu versions suck meatballs in my experience. constant crashes and bugs and well you get the picture.

Sorry to hear you've experienced so many problems with newer versions of Ubuntu. As you probably already know, Lucid (10.04) is going to be the next LTS and Ubuntu One will standard there.

Thank you,

Well, the 8.04 LTS will be EOL in April 2011. Many people, that are currently unsatisfied with KDE 4, will still use it. Why don't you backport it? The competition (dropbox, spideroak) for example supports even ubuntu 7.10!

We aren't supporting 8.04 or earlier mainly due to all the new dependencies that would need to be backported as well to provide support for notes, bookmarks, and contacts syncing in addition to files. We'd love help someone else do the backporting but are focusing on current and future versions of Ubuntu for the time being.

Thanks,

Joshua
