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.

iFolder is a fine, fine piece of technology, but it has its issues.

1) It's written in C#
2) Hard to make it work in non-novell situations
3) It's 'just' a folder sync and does not have any other could-type services.
