Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

photobucketGladinet, the desktop utility that mounts Google, Windows Live, and other web/cloud storage applications as locally backed-up folders, boasts about new stress-tested stability and compatability in its just-out release candidate download.

There's not a lot of whole-cloth new features or support in this release candidate, but when it comes to backing up Google Docs, Picasa Web Albums, Windows Live SkyDrive files, Amazon S3, or other cloud storage services, knowing that you could leave Gladinet backing up overnight without crashing is, in itself, kind of an important feature. And with better support for SkyDrive's free 25GB of storage space that landed between the first Gladinet beta we toured through and now, this Windows utility could be a whole lot more helpful.
