    Well, 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.

    Or you might have to say "Fare Well!" to your data.

    Until your hard drive crashes, at which time you will be extremely happy you did it.
    Carbonite ... pffft, $60 for one computer. How many computers does one have these days? Surely not just one!

    O_o

    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.

    For sure it wouldn't. I think steve was saying as a replacement to revision control. Just move the source files to DropBox so you can collaborate.

    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.

    Your words are as wise as always, Wise One. No objections from me here.
