The Web-based service will automatically reflect changes made to files on the user s desktop. Files will also be copied to any other Linux PC that the user is running.

Ubuntu One is currently in the beta mode and is being worked on by a select group of testers. It will available in two storage models a free 2GB account and a $10/month account that gives 10GB of storage.
