+Sundar Pichai introduces Google Drive!
 
There’s been a lot of buzz...so I’m excited to officially introduce Google Drive. We have really focused here on letting users create & share with others and this is a natural evolution of Google Docs. It’s not just storage, it’s about helping you live and work in the cloud and making sure your data is seamlessly available everywhere. You can use it across platforms -- Mac, PC, Android, iOS (coming soon) -- and you can use it with many third party applications - we’re working with many developers to expand the Drive ecosystem.

So, between the Loch Ness Monster and Google Drive, looks like you’ll have to keep looking for Nessie.
Just like the Loch Ness Monster, you may have heard the rumors about Google Drive. It turns out, one of the two actually does exist. Today, we're introducing Google Drive—a place where you can cre...

Great - Thank's for Google drive -)))
 
What about Linux users? Millions of us are waiting...
 
By the way, Microsoft released sync on SkyDrive today - 7 GB free storage, 25 GB for existing users.
 
Anyone know if Google Drive can use the 20GB annually purchased additional storage I already have (for mail, pics, etc)? Or is the only way to go above the 5GB free account to pay monthly..?
 
How Google Drive just lost all my Google documents:
- installed Google Drive PC App
- Disabled syncing between PC and Google Drive (I didn't want all my personal documents immediately syncing to my work machine)
- Created a folder on the Drive Web Site
- Moved all my existing Google Docs into that folder
- Despite sync being off, the new folder appeared immediately on my PC (but the files did not sync)
- Deleted the empty folder on my PC
- And that made it disappear on the Web as well, including all the documents in it.

Google - You have to do much better if you want to play in this game. No customer service link on the Drive page? Syncing doesn't work as it should (why did the empty folders appear even though sync was off?). Also, may be worth making the "undelete" (Trash) more easily discoverable.
 
Set-up Google Drive. One feature I liked is the selective synching of folders on each PC...that's a great feature to get only what is required on each PC....
 
I'm using it now - it's really just a slightly new look to Google docs. Can't see any other changes. I'm a linux user.
 
Maybe you've decided that Linux users are too cynical to trust Google with their data? :)
 
Another disappointed Linux user... Why the rush to launch something that doesn't support all platforms (even iOS)?
 
I welcome my google drive
 
Right now I will stick with Ubuntu One. Linux support is crucial for me!
 
Is it possible to start composing a msg in gmail, then attach or share a file from that compose window? Right now, it looks like we have to go to Drive and select the file to bring up a gmail compose window.
