Ubuntu One for Mac OS X stable released
Installing Ubuntu, the user, along with a wide and diverse set of functionalities, gets access to Ubuntu One, a powerful versatile application that connects one's computers and devices, allowing users to save to, sync from and publish items, etc, via Ubuntu One.
Furthermore, cases like users owning multiple devices (including OSes different from Ubuntu) and/or using Ubuntu at home and a proprietary OS at work, etc, can be easily resolved via Ubuntu One (from a syncing/saving-items point-of-view), due to its support for multiple OSes, actions and devices.
Months ago, the developers released an Ubuntu One client for Mac OS X, BETA stage that has just been shifted to a stable version.
The stable release introduces support for automatically checking and downloading updates, working-in-background state after the Ubuntu One Control Panel is closed (quit), as well as the ability to display progress of transfers (via its status icon menu) and to respect the system's proxy settings (excepting PAC files).
