Unfortunately, we’re still not there yet.
Here’s why: most people usually always think of Dropbox as a syncing solution. But it’s more than that. Dropbox can:
- keep multiple versions of files;
- let other people collaborate;
- detect conflicts and let you choose which file you want to keep;
- publish files for anyone to see;
- synchronize with peers over the LAN to save bandwidth;
- and more.
I really hope that those project catch up, but until then, I won’t consider them as alternatives.
