    They simply can't compete with the ton of other services out there, like Dropbox etc...

    We nearly hosted some files on there for the blog, good job we didn't now...:eek:

    Sadly, there's no official Google Drive client for Linux.
    There are some unofficial clients, like Grive-Tools and google-drive-ocamlfuse (http://www.webupd8.org/2013/09/mount-google-drive-in-linux-with-google.html)

    How safe is Google Drive? reliable service (no data lose to be expected.) Privacy? :rolleyes::unsure: (always a concern with ANY cloud storage)
    One of the cloud storage services that recently has got a lot of attention is copy.com (15GB free storage, +5GB for each referal...), which have a native linux client.
