Re: See There!

"Every time I see "voilà" spelt as "wuala" I want to punch someone" (and I'm not even French)

Wuala came out of a company based in Zurich. It's a decent approximation (and even mildly funny) if you pronounce it the German way, but without that clue, it was well dodgy.

Its use of Java was the show stopper for me, and no doubt many others. When I got the chance to ditch Java and its incessant security patches, Wuala wasn't in the picture any more.
