Re: ubuntu one


this is a good point, Rodney.  I also dont' want gigs of crap going to
my phone. I want just only contacts/calendar and select files and the
ability to do a backup of said files.

owncloud again solves all this doesn't it?

I imagine from the lack of support in here for owncloud that the
licensing of owncloud is not purely 'free'?  Otherwise, i can't figure
out why there wouldn't be more focus on using the owncloud project to
speed up stuff...  there has been tremendous development.

but I'm just one man who thinks out loud...
