Dear Ubuntu One Users: What SpiderOak Can Do For You
Canonical announced today that Ubuntu One is shutting down.
Other things Linux users might be tempted by:
– Scriptable Command Line Interface – great for cron jobs
– Configurable Backup and/or Sync between Arbitrary Folders
– “Keep Your Own Copy” feature and LAN Sync
– By Default: Perpetual storage of deleted items and old versions
Something we don’t have yet is Nautilus integration although it is on our roadmap.
P.S. Psst…don’t tell the Windows/Mac folks, but if you sign up from an Ubuntu Linux machine and then email us next week at firstname.lastname@example.org we’ll offer you a special deal. It’s our secret!
P.P.S. I just donated $1000 to Ubuntu to support them while they focus on providing a great OS and hope you might consider the same! (link, which tells me that for that price instead I could have had an adult camel which was a difficult choice.) You can also support Debian, Arch, and other Linux distributions here.
