    I'm sure Dropbox will provide source code, as they do with Linux.

    It's my understanding that Dropbox only open-source their web installer (mostly so they can get it included with the package manager in major distros.) The actual client it installs is closed source, proprietary, and auto-updates itself with no option to revert or stay on older versions. It's not exactly OSS "friendly".

    Ah, I was wondering about that.

    I went off of Dropbox and earlier xdrive (anyone remember them) after they got squirrely about their software.

    I currently use Box.com.
