Nikita Prokopov on Syncthing

Nikita Prokopov sharing his experience using a free and open-source alternative to Dropbox called Syncthing.

Syncthing is everything I used to love about computers. It’s amazing how great computer products can be when they don’t need to deal with corporate bullshit, don’t have to promote a brand or to sell its users. Frankly, I almost ceased to believe it’s still possible. But it is.

It is indeed heartwarming to see products like these still exist.1 I gave up on Dropbox long ago, and I have the same iCloud issues Nikita outlined. I am very happy to jump ship after reading this glowing review.
