dropbox
"Opened up a terrible security hole in my system. Dropbox is set up, unfortunately, to allow itself to automatically update itself. This is basically a remote-code-execution backdoor for Dropbox to access my system. Preventing the automatic updates is more trouble than Dropbox is worth. Alternate projects like Syncthing offer the same functionality on resources I own. Have now fully migrated."

mintupload
"This is a solution looking for a problem. All the file managers are quite capable of bookmarking FTP/SFTP destinations as well as SMB or NFS. So, basically people took the capability that's already in every file manager, wrote a utility that is inherently less functional, then decided this utility should be distributed by default. Why???"

"This processes passwords faster than the .NET KeePass2, so you can have your transform count set to something that offers real securty. However every other feature is less refined than in KeePass2. Password generation doesn't let you specify your own character set, there is no visual indication of when the clipboard will be cleared, advanced properties do not have drop-down select, any many other features are just far more basic. Useful as a "reader" for your KeePass database, whereas I keep KeePass2 for making changes to the database with."

"Makes for an easy switch from Windows, however the fact that it is done with .Net (MONO) makes it slow. This means that if you have your database password transform rounds set to something that offers real security, it takes 10 times longer to open with this version than with KeePassX which has native code."
