Ubuntu One 服務將會在 6 月 1 號正式關閉

相信有用過 Ubuntu 的網友也會知道,在不久之前 Ubuntu 曾經推出雲端儲存服務 Ubuntu One。Ubuntu One 是所有 Ubuntu 使用者也能免費獲得的服務,目的是吸引更多的使用者轉投 Ubuntu 系統。可惜的是,在雲端儲存服務的「戰爭」愈來愈激烈的情況下,只有 5GB 儲存空間的 Ubuntu One 顯示失去了優勢,也許 Ubuntu 亦因此認為關閉 Ubuntu One 服務是合適的。個人而言,在 Ubuntu One 剛推出的時候,雲端儲存服務對手並不多,加上 Ubuntu One 支援 Linux,Mac,Windows 甚至 Android 等多個平台,其實還是不錯用的(起碼當時筆者我自己也有用)。

無論如何,Canonical 已經決定於 6 月 1 號正式關閉 Ubuntu One,而所有 Ubuntu One 使用者可以於 7 月 30 號前取回自己儲存在 Ubuntu One 內的所有檔案,曾經付款購買相關服務的用戶則可以退款。

Ubuntu One 寄給筆者的 「服務關閉」 Email:

Title: Ubuntu One file services

From: Ubuntu One <Email住址會使用灌水程式保護機制。你需要啟動Javascript才能觀看它>

Hi,

We are writing to you to notify you that we will be shutting down the
Ubuntu One file services, effective 1 June 2014. This email gives
information about the closure and what you should expect during the
shutdown process.
 
As of today, it will no longer be possible to purchase storage or music
from the Ubuntu One store. The Ubuntu One file services apps in the Ubuntu,
Google, and Apple stores will be updated appropriately.
 
As always, your content belongs to you.  You can simply download your files
onto your PC or an external hard drive.  While the service will stop as of
1 June, you will have an additional two months (until 31 July 2014) to
collect all of your content. After that date, all remaining content will
be deleted.
 
If you have an active annual subscription, the unused portion of your fees
will be refunded. The refund amount will be calculated from today's
announcement.
 
We know you have come to rely on Ubuntu One, and we apologise for the
inconvenience this closure may cause.  We've always been inspired by the
support, feedback and enthusiasm of our users and want to thank you for
the support you've shown for Ubuntu One. We hope that you'll continue to
support us as together we bring a revolutionary experience to new devices.
 
The Ubuntu One team

在此,筆者再次對 Ubuntu One 的關閉表示遺憾和惋惜(作為 Ubuntu One 的使用者,影響還是有的),不過,個人也認為 Ubuntu 關閉 Ubuntu One 服務其實在很大程度上也是正確的決定,始終現在雲端儲存服務實在有太多的強敵(例如: Google Drive, MEGA, Dropbox, 百度雲<-雖然這個應該不關事),對 Ubuntu 來說花費來維持一個沒有競爭力的服務是不合乎利益的,我也不會斷言是誰的錯導致了 Ubuntu One 的關閉(當然反 Gxxxxx 的網友 tony200910041 就一口咬定是 Gxxxxx Drive 的所為吧) 。
