To be fair, I deliberately missed it - despite my day job, I am openly addicted to products from Cupertino. Since my day job revolves around web development, most of my work takes place in virtual machines (mainly because I’m targeting 10.04 LTS, but also because MacBook Pro support in 10.04 LTS is flaky), which means I’m still using OS X as the host operating system to get the most out of my hardware. (I am running 11.04 natively too, but I still use OS X + VirtualBox more.)
I also run a Windows Vista (Home) PC in the living room, which is the shared/gaming (Steam, World of Warcraft and Minecraft - all cross-platform) computer. There’s also various iOS devices to consider.
All of these are supported by Dropbox and Spotify, so I don’t really bother with Ubuntu One which is, naturally, Ubuntu-focused. They are going to put more emphasis on other platforms soon, but Dropbox and Spotify work now.
Still, Ubuntu One (+ Mobile) is another option, and freedom of choice is important.Read more
