It's also interesting to reflect on this argument, and draw parallels between arguments about BSD vs AT&T Unix (or indeed Mac OS and GNU and their differing sensibilities, which is much like the differences of sword etiquette between Kendo and Kumdo: what's Right for one just doesn't apply to the other).
I'm facing a semi-imposed move to Mac OS X later this year, from openSUSE. It's not being forced: I am free to install openSUSE on the Apple hardware if I want, but I'm thinking now that I can just go with Mac OS X and think of it as a cultural journey.
Oh Noes! Well, I get what I pay for, I suppose ;-)
Anyway, looks like the best "just works", free alternative is now MEGA. (mega.nz)
Switching was easy, don't use the Microsoft "solution" peddled by copy's site:
On your master computer (Linux PC):
1. sign up (50G for free, more than twice Copy's free account size)
2. download client installer (clients come in popular Linux flavours, including recent openSUSE, but you'll need to install the lib dependency manually if you haven't got it -- command line FTW)
3. launch client, login
4. copy (locally) from Copy directory to MEGA directory
5. Let the client upload/sync to cloud
Then on your other machines (comlink, pad, Windows, Macintosh):
1. Download the client, install
2. launch, login
3. Let it sync fully, or control what's synced.

if it's text/plain, why then are you encoding it????!
Fortunately I have emacs and/or unix tools... but many people don't.
I'm just this guy, you know?
I am a family man, father of three lovely boys. Happily married for 15 years, currently living in Hobart, Tasmania. I play musical instruments (Trombone/Timpani/Traps) and I hold a 2nd Dan ("black belt") in Taekwondo. I like Open Architecture computers, Open Source software, and Open Crown hats. Akubra, of course :D
On a professional level, I am a Computer Applications Support Engineer, focusing on the application of technology to business functions in finance and government, and bridging between the Developer, BA/QA and Systems worlds, which I've been doing since before there was a "DevOps" movement. I have worked with major I.T. firms as well as a government owned forest management organisation. I am an experienced cat herder and specialize in fitting round pegs to square holes. Handy in a tight squeeze to help get that late project of yours over the line.
