We have already mentioned about the Free Cloud Storage Services, including 5 GB storage from Ubuntu One. There are various Free Cloud storage Services including Dropbox which can be used as free CDN after a tweak as well. In this article, we will discuss how an user can use the Desktop Client Application for Windows 7 to manage the Free Cloud Storage From Unbuntu One.

Criticism of the free cloud storage provided by Ubuntu one
We can hope Ubuntu One will provide a better free cloud storage service. Currently the desktop client for Windows 7 weighs 21 MB, it is quite big.
There is no app for Mac although there is for iOS. May the reason, Mac users uses Dropbox and iCloud will provide more easy interface, so Ubuntu One has dropped the idea to develop a Mac client.
I personally like Dropbox as a Free Cloud Storage provider over Ubuntu one for bland storage for the easy web, Mac and Windows interface.
