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.

I actually did mention that:

"The ownCloud idea is that everybody can host it individually but a hosted solution will also be possible. In the beginning it will allow file hosting like Dropbox, but then add a lot more features like an individual music server or photo gallery."

You should probably have linked to the ownCloud announcement to give some background knowledge.
