    Canonical to halt its Ubuntu One file service

    Just a heads up: _Canonical to halt its Ubuntu One file service_

    The Service will not be included in the upcoming 14.04LTS release, and the Services will end on the 1st of June. leaving users from that time merely 30 Days to migrate their stuff before they wipe it.

    It would seem that the Ubuntu One Store has already discontinued all sales of Storage, and Music baised downloads.

    I'm sure the Reg will have more to report latter...

    Oh yeah I almost forgot my Source.... http://www.itweb.co.za/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=111601:Canonical-halts-Ubuntu-One-file-services

    Our strategic priority for Ubuntu is making the best converged operating system for phones, tablets, desktops and more. In fact, our user experience, developer tools for apps and scopes, and commercial relationships have been constructed specifically to highlight third party content and services (as opposed to our own); this is one of our many differentiators from our competitors. Additionally, the free storage wars aren’t a sustainable place for us to be, particularly with other services now regularly offering 25GB-50GB free storage. If we offer a service, we want it to compete on a global scale, and for Ubuntu One to continue to do that would require more investment than we are willing to make. We choose instead to invest in making the absolute best, open platform and to highlight the best of our partners’ services and content.
