I have been using linux much more often as Windows really does not seem likely any thing special or worth the money that it costs. Currently my laptop is running linux mint and I will be switching to Kubuntu 22.04 when it is released. The big problem I have been having is that I have alot of important files in Sync.com’s free 5GB plan. I would upgrade if they had a linux client, which as far as I can tell, they do not. The only idea I have would be wine, but again I've read the performance is not that great with wine. Has anyone tried this? I have one linux laptop and a VM on my desktop I want to run sync.com client. Any ideas? If I can't get this to work, then I am going to have to run my own, but I didn't really want to get into that. As far as running my own, is there any thing besides OwnCloud? I should note that my laptop rarely leaves my house, but often after being at my desk for a long time I switch to a recliner in my living room. I would like my files, not only synced, but backed up. If I run my own and start needed it out side my lan, I would use OpenVPN to gain access my work lan. I should note that my work network is on a 10. network behind pfSense, which it’s self is behind a TP-Link 192. router, that is amazon stick, roku, cell phones and sometimes my laptop. I assume the best idea for self hosted would be a docker image or vm of ubuntu server?
