Installs easily with no work needed other than to install the app.
Detects when new files are added or changed in the cloud and downloads them.
Uploads any new/changed files on startup.
Loads the "tray" icon.
What does not
Did not detect when I file was added or changed. Had to quit and restart sugarsync before it would upload files.
What was not tested
Nothing I can think of. I did multiple tests of files, folders, existing and new shares. All worked except for the noted bug preventing the detection of a change.
Might be useful if you mostly move files from a windows PC to your Ubuntu box like music or pictures. Less useful if you need a two way as every time you need to upload your changes you'll need to restart the application. Dropbox is still better for Linux.
