View Full Version : Have you used Ubuntu one?

November 11th, 2009, 07:42 PM
Apart from testing have you started using the Ubuntu One service?

November 11th, 2009, 08:19 PM
Nope, no cloudy crap for me. I prefer my privacy and freedom intact.

Cloud stuff is nice, but only with a proper implementation in Kubuntu. Until now I use dropbox.

Yes, and I think it's immensely useful.

November 11th, 2009, 08:28 PM
yes, i did, for one moment. i still prefer dropbox. in a way, ubuntu one looks like dropbox, only less features.:D

I will probably only ever use it if I can do so fully within my own network without using the Ubuntu One remote server.

If I ever want to pay for off-site storage, it won't be Ubuntu One unless the price is right.

November 11th, 2009, 09:13 PM
I am... on the verge of using it :) I also recommend to people that they use it as at least one means for backup if they are on Ubuntu :)

November 11th, 2009, 09:16 PM
I can't register an account, probably never will either

November 11th, 2009, 09:16 PM
I prefer my external hdd

November 11th, 2009, 09:20 PM
No. And I don't intend to until my area gets optic fibers and BT removes the 100GB bandwidth limit (damn fair usage policies.)

November 11th, 2009, 09:22 PM
I can't be arsed

November 11th, 2009, 09:26 PM
Don't need it. I have plenty of hard drive space. Now if I were to buy a netbook, that would be a different story.

November 11th, 2009, 09:34 PM
Why aren't the 10 who voted yes speaking up? I use it, and am happy with it. It's really not that different from drop box, but it's built into karmic and it's easy to sync files between my desktop, notebook and netbook.

I prefer my external hdd

and if your house burns down?

November 11th, 2009, 10:20 PM
Where's the "I tried, and even posted for help on the forums, but still couldn't get it to work" option? :?

November 11th, 2009, 10:24 PM
Yea. I use it when its actually working. It seems to have problems remembering if my computer is authorized, requiring me to reauthorize it on every boot. Sometimes it works fine though.

Mostly just because its there, so why not use it?

November 11th, 2009, 10:27 PM
Nope. Didn't even test it during Karmic test. I don't need clouds. I prefer open sunshine..

Yes, I just started using it.
I really like it!

Same here.

November 11th, 2009, 10:56 PM
I am using Ubuntu One and Dropbox both good programs.

November 11th, 2009, 11:12 PM
I prefer my external hdd

Yeah i am thanking about buying me one oh thos :)

November 11th, 2009, 11:15 PM
Yesterday it worked.
Today it is not working.
Windows is like that.

LOLZ isnt that the truth!

November 11th, 2009, 11:54 PM
I don't even know what it is.

I use dropbox, but I mostly backup on adrive cause of the space offered.

November 12th, 2009, 12:19 AM
Tried Ubuntu One but it was buggy for me. I use Dropbox.

November 12th, 2009, 12:26 AM
I use dropbox and love it, no reason to change. That being said I signed up for a free ubuntu one account but I am not using it.

November 12th, 2009, 12:30 AM
No. All my cloudy needs are currently satisfied by Gspace (a FF addon that enables you to use a Gmail account inbox as a drive on your computer. Fully integrated in Firefox. And free as the air.)

November 12th, 2009, 12:58 AM
Currently using Dropbox. I have an account with Ubuntu One. I like that website very much. Since I am mostly using Mac these days, I couldnt upload my folders to Ubuntu One website. If they release some software for Mac, I will use it instead of Dropbox.

November 12th, 2009, 04:15 AM
I'm trying to use it, but I can't get it to sync much at all. I have 147 megs in the folder and online and other computer only get 4 megs of it. It's using almost 100% of resources but just sends tiny blips over the net.

Dropbox would have finished this quickly and has clients for Mac and Windows machines as well. This project has quite a way to go. :(

November 12th, 2009, 04:59 AM
Perfect for me, and I'm probably going to upgrade to the 50G after it's out of Beta. ( Canonical, please don't leave projects in Beta forever like Google :( )

November 12th, 2009, 05:23 AM
Mostly I stick papers there so I can work on them as long as I have computer access somewhere.

November 12th, 2009, 09:36 PM
When you just see Ubuntu One you tend to feel its a great service. But then whether you really need it is another story.
