I recently applied for the UbuntuOne beta program. It seems interesting enough, and sounds like a good idea. But the thing is, why is Canonical trying to hide a storage server and make it seem like it's so much more? What is UbuntuOne you say. Well here's a cap:
Sync your files, share your work with others or work remotely, all with your Ubuntu computer.Sync your files, share your work with others or work remotely, all with your Ubuntu computer.
Well, that's not very descriptive now is it. If you go to the plans page, it will give you the option of choosing a 2GB (free) or 10GB (pay) for storage. I'm not saying that this is a bad thing. I'm just trying to say that disguising a FTP storage site as a brand new idea isn't very sportsmanshiplike.
So, am I going to buy an account? Probably. But I still don't like the cover up. Oh ya, and one more thing--Linux Mint had this first, with a storage site and their own FTP for access to it. Just some thoughts for chew.
