A short snippet of news for Ubuntu users that are running 9.04.  Canonical is currently working on providing online filespace which with the appropriate software fits seamlessly into your Ubuntu distro.

Currently the service is invite only with 2gb of storage space offered for free with an upgrade to 10gig for $10.  I hope users get themselves over to this service and also support it.  IMO Canonical has placed much effort into getting Linux (and in particular Ubuntu) seen as a viable alternative to Windows, if this is one of the ways Canonical can make a return out of such effort then its something which the Ubuntu community should embrace.  Visit Ubuntu One here.

I need to thank Twitter user @slasherfun for the post that led me to the site.
