Finally Dropbox (http://www.getdropbox.com/) released their software for Linux.

Installed on my regular laptop and it works fine.

Also installed it on my Eee Pc and so far it works great.

Thought I would share this information as it is a nice online storage that syncs the content with a folder on your computer.

Mind telling me what it does? I looked at the web site can run on Fedora 9 and Ubuntu, etc. Looks slick.

Since you brought it up, please provide an intro.

You can check out their tour here:
http://www.getdropbox.com/tour

In general, you create an account and install a program on your computer.
That program creates a folder on your computer. That folder will then be synced with your online storage. You can then install their software on your other computers and that folder will be synced between your computers and online storage.

You can also share a folder with certain Dropbox users.

Hope that helps. :-)
Sorry for being so brief. Early in the morning and felt like sharing this information. :-)
