Mandriva's answer to Ubuntu One : Click'n' Backup

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..

  2. Ubuntu One is restricted only to Ubuntu to Ubuntu sync, making it inaccessible for other distro and OS users..
  3. Ubuntu One offers high cost for 10Gb ...

Seeing all the response from audience Mandriva SA came with shrewd alternative and hit the nail at the right time.. Mandriva Click'n'Backup has quite a few advantages over Ubuntu One..

  1. Source Code is available for studying therefore its fully Open.

  2. It is available for all Operating system, be it Windows or Mac or whole range of Linux.. no restrictions for any users..
  3. Offers better solution that Ubuntu one at lower price...

Click’n Backup for you and your data

blog.mandriva.com: We are happy to launch a new service, we hope it to be a long time companion for Mandriva Linux:

Click'n Backup

We face two apparently contradictory needs these days. One is that our files are valuable - we work with them, put a lot of our lives in them (photos, emails, movies, songs, memories) - we want, we need them to be safe.

The other need is that, more and more, we want to access, modify our files, wherever we are - not only when we are on our computer or at home - we move and we want our data to move with us. And we want this to be simple.

Click’n Backup is an answer to this. We have:

Ubuntu Touch finds a home on a conflict-free, fair-trade, user-maintainable handset

Handset maker Fairphone is teaming up with the community project UBports, which seeks to get Ubuntu Touch on mobile devices. They will be showing off Ubuntu Touch running on the Fairphone 2 during Mobile World Congress, which starts February 27 in Barcelona. While Ubuntu is probably not the first name that comes to mind when you think of mobile devices, the phone in question offers some compelling features. “UBports Foundation will be showcasing its work at the Canonical booth, the company behind Ubuntu. Canonical is planning to tell about the latest developments around the convergence of its devices and UBports Foundation will share its mission ‘Ubuntu On Every Device’ with the visitors,” UBports said in a February 8 press release. Currently, UBports’ website lists three devices as “fully working as daily drivers:” The OnePlus One, Nexus 5, and the Fairphone 2, with the latter showing all parts as functioning with Ubuntu Touch, save the GPS radio. (Interestingly, the UBports project website for the Fairphone 2 still lists the GSM radio [in addition to the GPS] as a work in progress. However there is a video of two people talking with the handset, so it’s likely the Fairphone 2 project website is out of date.) The website also has instructions for flashing Ubuntu to the Fairphone 2. Read more

  • “Hi, I’m jkh and I’m a d**k”
    Yesterday, I was privy to a private email message discussing a topic I care deeply about. I contacted the author and said “You really need to make this public and give this a wider audience.” His response boiled down to “if I wanted it to get a wider audience, I was welcome to do so myself.” So here’s my first ever guest post, from Jordan K Hubbard, one of the founders of the FreeBSD Project. While this discussion focuses on FreeBSD, it’s applicable to any large open source project.
