Ubuntu One –> Dropbox

Now that Canonical has announced the withdrawal of the Ubuntu One cloud service later this year I decided to take another look at Dropbox which I have previously tried but abandoned in favour of Ubuntu One’s cross platform capabilities. Well, Dropbox has come along and now the cross platform functionality, at least Ubuntu/Windows, is available in a seamless way. On Ubuntu you can install using the software centre. I’ve re-installed Dropbox and installed the Ubuntu app  and all is running fine with almost immediate notifications of any changes being done to files  being flagged to any platform sharing the account. You can find Dropbox here
