Filed under
MDV
Web

Ever since the launch of Ubuntu One there has been a lot of speculation about it.. Unlike other Ubuntu/Canonical offering Ubuntu One didn't received good response from audience..There are many reasons for it..

  1. Ubuntu One / Launchpad is still not fully open..

This is what our users love about our software, this is why they choose Plasma and KDE software instead of one of the other Free desktop offerings.

BitTorrent Bleep alpha released for Android

As an alpha it still has some issues “As with any Alpha, there are some known issues and bugs to work out. Android users will need to set the app to “Wi-Fi Only” unless you have an unlimited data plan; this is only for the time being while we iron out and issue related to battery and data-plan. And while you can move a username from desktop to mobile, Bleep does not yet support moving an existing account from Android to the desktop. And while you can receive messages on multiple devices; messages sent will not be seen across all devices. As with our previous release, communications happen only when all parties are online – you cannot send offline photos or group chats asynchronously.” Read more
