Re: Google Drive is go!

This is actually a good point.

Almost everything online is done using emails these days. Even the cloud services accounts - whatever one uses - is linked in some way to the email. Starting from dropbox to bank accounts - all emails. To simplify things greatly - one's entire life is in emails!

Backups are more reliable if kept off site - and if done automatically then more likely to be up to date? No point backing up if they go up in smoke along with the PC!

Re: Google Drive is go!

Those able to add one and one will eventually realise that this is a first slow move google takes to destroy Linux.

Chronical (ubuntu one) is going down thanks to google. Always when working with google they end up going for your buisness and taking it all, history always repeats just look at firefox naivley driving all traffic to google now google are their main competitor (chrome), this is just of MANY cases. If Linux devs thinks google won't try to eat their buisness. Then people are quite naive.

How is (out-)competing with Canonical's cloud storage service destroying Linux?

While I agree that it's naïve to put too much trust in any large company, even with a "do no evil" reputation like Google's, I'm forced to call FUD on this comment. It is absolutely not in Google's commercial interest to "destroy Linux"...

Google has a history of destroying its partners while telling the sweetest stories about good and evil. Why would this market be any diffrent?

Heard of Chrome book or android? What do google benifit from more: having a ubuntu in every computer or watching chrome OS and android dominate?

Its not a "accident" that they develope OS'es and steal code from linux and oracle they want the Linux market. And eventually they like to take as much market as possible.

Google will try and probably do nice in killing Linux especially since the Linux community is cheering its own death, google have no love for linux simply its just marketing the nice guy talk. Its money talking, google as a company has the pressure to make more and more just like everyone else. Google is seeking more and new markets mainly due to facebook. Facebook is kinda stepping on their toes when it comes to ads (but google first stepped at webmasters toes in this area first in the usual destroying partners approatch so maybe they deserve it?)

Birdwatcher is right. Google's late entrance into the cloud is more of a strategic move than anything else. Great infographic on what impact Google Drive will have on this space is available here: http://www.firmex.com/blog/generic-v...-in-the-cloud/

If history tells us anything, it's that Google late entry strategy works!
