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.

Ubuntu One is proprietary. You canĀ“t run your own server and all you personal files are stored on a remote server.
This is one of the problems we want to solve with ownCloud.
