    Ubuntu One vs. Dropbox

    I just found a service called Dropbox (http://www.getdropbox.com/) and was curious how this stacks up vs. Ubuntu One. I have not used either one... but from reading the details they seem similar in function, but dropbox is cross-platform.

    I like ubuntu one a lot better and they keep
    adding features to it.Ubuntu one will not be
    beta software for long.

    You may also want to take a look at SpiderOak.

    It's cross-platform but also offers you privacy and encryption.

    SpiderOak is offering 50% off for EDU accounts too... this could work for the people that showed me dropbox.

    Dropbox is cross-platform, but the dropboxd daemon only supports Linux on x86 (maybe 64 also). OTOH, the Ubuntu One client is mostly hardware independent and the rest is easily built from source; this makes it nice if you are running Ubuntu on PowerPC, for instance.

    SpiderOak is cross-platform and supports 64-bit (not PowerPC, though).

    Re: Ubuntu One vs. Dropbox

    One of Ubuntu One's benefits is the fact it's open source which can be quite helpful for quick and innovative development. Currently I prefer Dropbox but maybe that'll change.

    O.T. if you'd like to try Dropbox, here's a referral link (get 250 MB = 0,25 GB free extra space): https://www.getdropbox.com/referrals/NTE4NjE5MDY5

    I have been using both. Ubuntu-one is very attractive but sometimes won't syncronize files in cloudy. Then I usually use Dropbox for work. Now I heard another option, "spider oak". I will try it soon.

    Then we can have UbuntuOne on ARM handhelds/phones, which would be pretty nice.

    Re: Ubuntu One vs. Dropbox

    I was wondering if there are some application that makes it possible to set up a "dropbox/ubuntuone" service on our own server?
    Do we watch anime to live or do we live to watch anime?
