Will there be a Windows (or other OS) version of the Ubuntu One Client?

Asked by Christian Heindel on 2009-05-14

I use several operating systems in multiple offices and at home. It would be nice, if I was able to also sync my Windows files.

This is a great question! I think it is already (at least partially) solved in this answer: https://answers.edge.launchpad.net/ubuntuone-client/+question/70812

We're building a server and client that work really nicely in Ubuntu.

The client component, protocol and various things will be open source projects so that other people can take up the cause and write them for their particular situation (be that a Windows client, iPhone App, a separate web app that doesn't something differently than ours does, etc).

I've done this post here, i'm just "spreading it".

Will canonical make windows client by itself?

Yes this would be really nice if Canonical could support a version of Ubuntu One for Windows/Mac! Being the first service to be very cross-platform should be a big advantage towards other services!!

Apparently it's not in the mix, not even a sync utility. This makes sharing really hard with non-ubuntu users. First they must accept the share, then create an account, then wonder if they're being fooled into accepting a 2GB account for free, then only use a partially functioning web ui. Sad.

Can you help with this problem?
