In the News There is an ongoing discussion on a Gnome mailing list which points out that Gnome and KDE might collaborate for a new project: a FLOSS alternative to Dropbox. The Gnome and KDE approach is more towards an collaboration tool, but which is very close to Dropbox. The DE independent FLOSS Dropbox alternative idea came because Google Summer of Code is approaching and both Gnome and KDE have a collaboration tool on their list.

owncloud?
gnome frontend?
shared project?

YES YES one thousand times YES!

This will stomp the competition as long as I can run it all from my own data server and not have to pay someone else for syncing data over the internet like dropbox.
