What's with all of the sarcy comments. Don't want it? Don't use it. It's that simple. Isn't the choice of using it a good thing overall rather than just complaining about something that didn't suit you anyway. If there's stuff you really don't want to be seen, then don't upload it to the cloud. It's just simple security measures really.
Heh, silly Dropbox. I only use you to store nonessential things- like unfinished Skyrim mod projects! People who put important things in the Cloud . . . all I have to say it, Megaupload. Not the same situation, obviously, but who'
s to say the government wont go after Dropbox eventually? Perhaps some people store illegal materials on there, which would be a nice excuse for a warrant.
drop box sync is really system intensive for older XP based systems constantly requiring a 1GB RAM resource on computers, when you only have at the most 3.5 available.
Skydrive IMO does a much better job of syncing/sharing/categorizing your files and is nominally less resource intensive, not to mention to multitude of added benefits in conjunction with the new MS Office.
