Ubuntu One Music Store: A Real Business?

,----[ Quote ]
| Where will the music come from? A new 
| online music store? Or some existing store? 
| My best guess â and this is purely a guess 
| â is some sort of connection to the Amazon 
| MP3 music store, since Shuttleworth briefly 
| mentioned Amazon during the Ubuntu 9.10 
| launch phone call with media. Also, Amazon 
| in April 2008 released an MP3 downloader 
| program for Linux, including support for 
| Ubuntu.

| For those who donât know, the Lucid UDS has 
| begun today.
| One of the most interesting yet controversial 
| meetings is this: the Ubuntu One Music Store. 
| What it will be is currently left to the 
| imagination since no specification has 
| apparently have been drafted yet. Selling 
| music online has always been a controversial 
| topic, and that adds interest in such a 
| feature.


Ubuntu One Music Store, my answers



A Hands on and Review of Ubuntu One

,----[ Quote ]
| Canonical (the company behind Ubuntu) has recently released a beta version of
| their online file syncing service â UbuntuOne for public testing. This file
| syncing service is similar to the popular Dropbox service and it allows you
| to share and sync file across different computers.
| [...]
| Ubuntu One is still at beta mode and there are plenty of things that are not
| on par with other online storage solution such as Dropbox. However, with the
| vision of Ubuntu One and as Ubuntu become more and more popular, I wonât be
| surprised to see Ubuntu One becoming a major force in the file and data
| management arena in the near future.


Ubuntu One: Not the Holy Cloud Grail but useful enough
and with a lot of potential

| Still, a free 2 GB is a nice enticement for
| any given cloud-backup service. And
| watching what Ubuntu One eventually becomes
| looks to be a popular sport among FOSS
| proponents. I'll be one of them.


Ubuntu One Beta Finally Kicks Off
