Re: [vox] Ubuntu One?
I find it is basically like dropbox, if you're familiar with that, a
convenient way to sync files across different machines. It's a nice
way to get another 2 gigs of cloud space, but not as useful since not
everyone has it. It also syncs notes (from tomboy) and contacts (from
Evolution maybe? I don't find this useful), and a music library -- you
can buy songs through it and then have access to them through the
cloud (without counting against your storage space) as well as
locally. I find the music store reasonable but a bit small, and
downloads are slow enough to be rather annoying. Though works right
It has a mobile package for android/iphones, but unlike dropbox, it's
not free (I'd be okay with a small one-time cost, but its $4/month..)
It's a convenient way to share files publicly. I don't really need a
solution to sync my files across multiple ubuntu machines I use, since
I already have other tools to do that and a lot of my workflow is in
already, but I could imagine that could be useful too.
