Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"I have Windows Live and would use the sync tool except for the
fact that I need to sync documents between my work Windows 7
computer, my "family room" Ubuntu Maverick Meerkat PC and with some
other buddies some of which also use Linux. One of my favorite
cloud apps is Windows Live Skydrive, which lets you store any kind
of document in the cloud and access it from any other browser, even
Firefox running on the Linux Ubuntu PC. I routinely upload Office
files from work there and can edit them in the browser on the Linux
machine at home.
"But synch? It relies on Mesh for the sync function which
doesn't support Ubuntu. So if I really need to make sure I have the
file, Internet connection or not, Dropbox it is."
