Really cool stuff. Glad to see my gov’t doing the right thing. Even created a nextcloud account because it might be exactly what I’m looking for to replace onedrive on linux (open source code to manually sync).
So far they just cut & pasted the recommendations of the CCC (more or less) into their wish-list paper… but yes it is a good first step.
You could use Syncthing too, to synchronize between your devices: mobile, laptop, PC…
Not bad, but my understanding is Syncthing is not cloud storage? Correct me if I’m wrong, but that’s not even close to what NextCloud or OneDrive does.
I’m surprised that Nextcloud haven’t gone the whole way, and built a complete, lightweight, OS by now.
They already struggle to maintain their feature-creep in Nextcloud itself, so why reinvent the wheel to make yet another Linux distribution?
This. Just because a company does one thing well does not mean they should expand into some mega corporation that makes all of it’s own software and products.
… because they’re half way there, really.
Nextcloud feels different to an OS… Even though you work with apps (from a “store”) : it’s a contained world. It just seems odd to me that it has to be built atop something else, rather than coming as a complete entity.
