Excited to hear that the requests will be dealt with swiftly! Loved the idea of UbuntuOne since i first read about it and requested an invite straight away. Yep. Cos i'm sad!
Everything Ubuntu. Daily.
Please allow me to go a little AOL for a moment and say ME TOO. Thanks.
Cloud based meaning faster transfers to users?
i'd like one.
Right now Ubuntu One is basically a file storage, syncing and sharing service that looks very similar to box.net or dropbox, but we're planning quite a bit more interesting stuff in the relatively near future (including screen sharing, providing syncing APIs to all the apps on the Ubuntu Desktop that can take advantage of your Ubuntu One account, syncing preferences and settings files in an interesting way, etc)
As far as invites, the best thing to do right now is jump on the queue at https://ubuntuone.com, we're trying to send out invites as quickly as makes sense, while scaling our service so that all of our existing users will still be working without trouble.
Thanks for your patience!
