"For example, I use Dropbox to keep documents on my
Linutop in sync with my Eee PC. That’s all fine and dandy,
but if you visit the project's download page, you'll discover that
the packaged version of Dropbox is available only for a handful of
distros. You can compile Dropbox on your system using the provided
source code package, but there is an easier way to make the
software work with your particular distro."
