    Re: Ubuntu One vs. Dropbox

    Both are good services, but I really like the integration provided by Ubuntu One. For example, when I write an e-mail in Thunderbird, when I go to attach a large file, Thunderbird will offer to upload the attachment to Ubuntu One, share it and e-mail the link instead. Stuff like that really appreals to me.

    The only complaint I've had with One is getting it to run on other operating systems (Windows and PC-BSD). It can be made to work, but I've found it isn't as smooth as getting it running on Ubuntu.

    Re: Ubuntu One vs. Dropbox

    I found a posting that talks about being able to connect to Ubuntu One via FTP in other distributions.

    Recently, James Henstridge from my team at Ubuntu One released u1ftp, a simple app to provide FTP access to Ubuntu One. It's deliberately designed so that it works across platforms; whether you're on Windows or OS X or Ubuntu or Kubuntu or Fedora or whatever, it should work for you, so you can access your Ubuntu One storage via FTP, and therefore if you want to you can mount your U1 storage as a drive in your file manager.
