    SSO will not be affected.

    Until it is affected.

    Threads merged.

    @michael-eacott, Ubuntu SSO is not affected by the shutdown of Ubuntu One file services. Please see my post #7 in this thread.

(for the mp3s you do need to add the Google Music app)....

    Admit it's a tad easier and convenient if you like and use Chrome as i do...but it is perfectly and easily workable using ANY browser (as long as you have a gmail account of course and that gets 15 gb of free storage space)...
    It's a very good cloud service, there is no doubt about that.

    I've tried listening to a 1 hour podcast I had uploaded on the drive with Firefox and it didn't work. It says I need Google Chrome to play this file. I suggest you try it and you'll see.

    Can't drag and drop files in the Drive neither, you need a chromium browser.

    That's what I call steering towards the use of Chrome. You can't have all the feature without it.

    I prefer using Onedrive, Box or BitCasa. It is totally browser agnostic and has the same thing Google Drive offer.

    To play that podcast, perhaps you need to add google drive music app to it...i couldn't play mp3s from my google cloud account until i added that on...seems to need it for any kind of audio files...
    I have access to the drag and drop on my Chrome of course, but rarely use it...i usually just have it open my file manager and do it from there...
    I use google viewer to view any videos in my cloud....that comes within the drive account automatically by default...that is also used to view documents, photos, etc...

If they can't make it attractive even for the avid users it is not likely to have wider reach.

    Personally I don't use any cloud.
    Exactly. They wanted to reach out to non-Ubuntu users. But seriously, how many non-Ubuntu users are going to use Ubuntu One when we have so many other proven choices out there that don't have a name associated with an operating system they don't want to use? It wasn't destined to generate the revenue they wanted, just like a phone won't, either. I have a feeling that if they want to become a multi-billion dollar company, they're in the wrong line of business. Maybe they need to start selling timeshares to fund their Linux project.

    And what's with the "failure" and "confession"? The choice of words is interesting.

    How many projects Google has started and then "confessed" their "failure" by closing those projects?

    +1

    And with some of the information floated from Canonical and Ubuntu + Android devices... It would not surprise me to see Ubuntu Unity tie into Google services.

    Personally, I think Ubuntu Unity with Google services would be great. Chrome OS does not offer the flexibility or capabilities of Ubuntu Unity - A great OS would be Ubuntu Unity with Google services

    Copy also makes it easy to get up in space. I have about 225GB of space in mine. A package for installing in Ubuntu would be great but I do like how it is cross-platform AND cross-distro. (I also have 125GB of OneDrive, 15GB of Google Drive and 2.25GB of Dropbox)

    If Ubuntu announces an agreement with Google to use Google Drive I will welcome it from a consumer perspective, but it would also cast a shadow over Ubuntu and Canonical's independence that isn't so easily dismissed. Google has killed off Reader and iGoogle and promised a Linux client a couple of years ago. Not offering a client is one thing, and I can deal with that, but that they promised a Linux client and haven't delivered is what gets me upset.

    When you think of it, though, only Ubuntu (Unity) users will miss it. Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Lubuntu and other Linux distros have never really had access to it and the web interface sucked enough even it wasn't an alternative.
