Join Thousands Of Linux Users Asking Google For Native Drive Client


Quote:
Imagine 15,000 people, all desperately wanting to use your product – so much so that they take time out of their day to sign a petition. That’s the case for Google: a Change.org petition demanding a Linux version of Google Drive is rapidly approaching its goal of 15,000 signatures.

Google Drive is two things: the highly anticipated sync service from the web giant, and the name for the web service once called Google Docs. Linux users can currently use Google’s web products without issue, but not the syncing service – there’s no official client for the open source operating system.

Similar to Dropbox and Microsoft’s Sky Drive, the desktop software syncs documents in a particular folder on the users’ computer to the cloud. This allows users to access their files online, or to sync them between multiple devices. Google offers users of the service 15 GB for file storage (though that storage is split between Drive, Gmail and Google+ Photos).
More information at MakeUseOf... or go directly to the Change.org Petition.

Hi,

A native client, grive, is under development and and already works. It is currently lacking a daemon for automatic syncing, but that can be worked around by teaming it with incron. I've been happily using it for some time.
