O_oWell, if you are concerned about your data, you may have to be careful when selecting a cloud provider since you ARE trusting them with the well fare of your data, after all.
I'm not saying you are wrong; if a provider is careless with security it doesn't really matter how "delete" operates.
I was talking about the mechanism; it has nothing to do with the service provider as I'm referring simply to how cloud software, in general, works.
There's however another related use for DropBox that I think can be a powerful collaboration solution as far as actual revision control is concerned: Essentially you place your repository there. I've done this in the past with great results. Not terribly useful for academic or open source projects that require collaboration, since you can just use any of the freely available services on the web. But very useful if you wish to collaborate at cost 0 over closed source projects. Usually none of these web services will allow that kind of project.
And before anyone asks there's in fact plenty of scenarios in which a closed source project may require collaboration over a distance and may have a cost 0 requirement. Here's two:
- You don't have a business yet and which to start developing a product before you commit to the whole legal and fiscal unpleasantness of owning a business.
- You don't have money, are poor as dirt, but righteously feel that shouldn't stop you and your small group of friends from trying like everyone else.
Reimplementing a large system in another language to get a 25% performance boost is nonsense. It would be cheaper to just get a computer which is 25% faster.
