    Mandatory “I want a Drive Client for Linux” comment. Why should I care about features I won’t be able to access out of a cumbersome web app without even a search tool?

    Also, why should I since I won’t be renewing anyway.

        What’s getting old is continuously asking for a Linux Drive client. I will keep on whining about it, probably until the end of my subscription.

        So it is not sarcasm. As I, too, am getting old I just tend to repeat myself. A lot.

    looks like there’s no way to allow edits for everyone with the link, they can only view the document that way. guess it’s Google Docs for me for the foreseeable future :(

    also, it doesn’t seem to support previewing .odt, while .docx works fine.

      Are you sure others cannot edit? From the linked blog post:

      “Share and invite anyone — Invite other users to view or edit your documents with a single click.”

      “Collaborate in real-time — Changes are reflected immediately, ensuring every contributor always sees the most up-to-date version.”

        yes, like your quote says, you have to invite other users. you have to explicitly add every user’s email in order to let them edit it, you can’t just create a link and send it to people.

    I’m tempted to give this a try. I already am really happy with my VPN and password manager, but it looks like you can subscribe to mail/calendar for a reasonable price. If I did that and drive, I’d rely on Google a lot less.

      If you need more than one domain there’s also a business plan that gives you 3 for less money than the top-tier individual plan.

    Really nice. We’re in the process of setting up office tooling for my work, and there is little competition for Google Suite, since it’s cheap as hell and includes so much. Some competition in the space is very welcome.

    One thing that scares me about proton is that git send-email seems to not work great (at least according to git-send-email.io). Anyone knows if that is still accurate?

    Very cool, I will keep self hosting instead of using corpoid “privacy” services that help convict climate activists
