Ubuntu offers file-syncing between computers

Ubuntu, the anti-Windows and anti-mac operating system, will offer automatic file syncing between computers in its new release, Ubuntu 9.04, a.k.a Jaunty Jackalope.  For those computers users looking for an easy way to share files from computers, or to just be at the same updated levels in terms of information, this file synchronization feature is a huge step.

Basically, when you make changes to any of the files stored in a folder, the modifications are automatically uploaded to a web service and then back to the other computers in your computer network or home network.  You can get up to 2GB for free or pay $10 / month for 10GB.  In the future, Ubuntu might also offer syncing for application data and preferences and software.  For now, the file saving feature to other computers is just for files. 

This feature has not yet been offered in other operating systems which makes the free Ubuntu operating system a more appealing option.  But, let’s not get ahead of ourselves.  PCs and Macs are still more robust and just more comfortable to use at this time.  We feel Ubuntu will have to allow Mac and PC software to be compatible with its system before computer users start pushing the trend more to Ubuntu.
