I may have been a bit harsh last time. Let me try this again.
to use Google Drive to sync my files between machines. A lot of us do. You offer quite a bit more storage than other free services. However, I use not just Windows and Mac OS X, but also CentOS 6 and Fedora Linux.
I can't use it on my Windows and Mac OS X installs because it can't sync with Linux. I'm still using /Dropbox/ because it supports Linux. /Dropbox/
Those of us with Linux machines cannot use Google Drive for file sync reliably. The lack of an official client leaves us with Grive, and it doesn't always work. Heck, it needs a cron job to sync automatically.
The Linux community is rather aghast at the lack of an official client after so long because /you guys develop on it internally/. We can't understand why you would leave a good portion of your own production machines without sync like this.
Please, Google. Give us #Drive4Linux
. Your userbase on Mac and Windows will go up. We'll happily assist with bug reports and testing. We're the Linux community, this is what we do.
At the very least, if you open the APIs to us, we can give you something to start from. That's less money spent by you for the same end product!
Please, Google. Please. #Drive4Linux
