    Question Can someone tell me what ubuntu one is for?

    Ok so what is ubuntu one and what is it used for?

    ubuntu one is ubuntu's first step into 'cloud computing' where data and files are no longer stored on your computer but 'in the clouds' that is, on the internet. ubuntu one is free and you can try it out up to 2Gb of data. I'm new to this too and I am looking forward to learning much about this as this is the direction that the future of computing is heading...to the 'clouds'.

    Check out this site on ubuntu one. You only have to pay $10/mo if you want 50Gb of space.

    Cloud computing is new to practically all of us and security is everyone's first concern about this novelty. I followed the lecture that was given about ubuntu one on IRC during open week. I don't remember exactly how the lecturer answered this question but I do remember that his answer put all of us at ease regarding the security of cloud computing. That is, no one can access your data that you upload unless you choose to share it with other individuals.

    I haven't stuck my nose in here for about 3 months now, since everything has been working perfectly for me.
    Just popped in to see if I could find out if a new LTS version is stable yet.

    Saw this and HAD to have a looks see!

    My question would be, WHY would someone PAY a monthly fee to store data off-site at such an exorbitant rate?????

    10 bucks a month for 50 gigs, if I read that right.

    If you need external storage space for some reason, why not go through your existing ISP? Most give you around 20 to 25 gigs for FREE, then additional storage space is only like 2 bucks a year for each addnl 25 gigs.

    I use 500 gig external HD's as mirrors, one on-site, one off-site.
    HD's are CHEAP these days!

    I guess I'm missing the purpose of this Ubuntu One?

    i think one of the purpose is accessibility; you cannot carry your external drive where ever you go right?
