    What's so bad about it?/QUOTE]

    What is upsetting a lot of people is that Canaonical are a commercial company and they will be charging for those who wish more than the 2G free storage amount. As this is a commercial undertaking a lot of people think that the name should not be directly associated with Ubuntu a free open source project, and as such should not be on the Ubuntu forums.
    No
    The majority of the people are ok with canonical making making with this software.
    Heck the more money they make the better for us.
    And canonical does make money from ubuntu from OEMS.

    let us be clear what is upsetting people is that this is CLOSED SOURCE.
    the client being open source is of no use without the server.i cant do anything with only the client right now.

    So just make It FOSS and then people will gladly even pay for the premium versions.

    ubuntu is free software, so ubuntu one should either be renamed and canonical should not integrate it by default else open it up.

    Let's be serious here. Ubuntu has paid support, how many use it? A laughable amount.

    Apologies tgpraveen, I was only commenting on the little info I had read on bits of this and other threads. My statement was to try & help someone understand why this is an issue at all. If I have been inacurate then I apologize.

    This is confusing me, is it proprietary or Open-Source, or does it have a mixed license? Is it that actual service that's proprietary? *confuzzeled*

    Re: Should ubuntuforums have this section?

    Why was this forum opened ? Why on ubuntuforums.org and not on canonicalbusinessforums.org ?

    I really think that Canonical acknowledged the concerns that the community has in regard of Ubuntu One and has requested this forum to let you and the UbuntuOne kids know better and perhaps even play together.

    I don't see any attempt to steal users or whatever. That's a ridicule claim.

    No, only the server side software is closed. The protocol is open, which means that a developer could fairly easily create an Ubuntu One server.

    As I said here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...82&postcount=3 the forum exists because Canonical requested it.

    As was noted here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...3&postcount=19 Ubuntu One is not the only commercial area on this forum.

    Since the open source client will be available in Ubuntu, it will require support. It's logical to have a support form for Ubuntu One in Ubuntuforums.org.

    You beat me to the punch.

    And in general to everyone, let's remember canonical owns this forum and they are entitled to request a category about one of their products. Having the Ubuntu One forum is no different then the Dell or System76 forum here.

    Re: Should ubuntuforums have this section?

    This forum was created to help give the community a chance to give feedback and get technical to the Ubuntu One developers. People are complaining that Ubuntu One is not free and Canonical abusing the good will of Ubuntu, but yet they requested a "forum" to get input from the community at the beginning of this new product line.

    Ubuntu and Canonical has always have supported the ideas of free software, but they have done it in a pragmatic way. The inclusion of NVIDIA driver, certain wireless driver, etc... Most people see the free software battle as a line in the sand, but it is a battle of inches and every day we get a little closer to victory.
