I've been using Ubuntu One since I upgraded to Karmic.  I'm really
liking it, and starting to move parts of my home directory to it and
connect it back to my home with symlinks.

I only put stuff on there that I don't have a ton of redundant copies
of on the Internet already.  But the fact that it syncs to my homedir
no matter which system I login to is very, very nice.

If I start running low on space, I may even consider upgrading.
