Give me More Sugar - Sharing Folders with SugarSync

In a previous blog entry, I mentioned SugarSync--a Dropbox like tool--did NOT work with UbuntuLinux. Also, how do you share folders with SugarSync?

Well, I was wrong. It works just fine using WINE, as you can see from the screenshot below:

Here's what the screenshot of the web app looks like (desktop app above):

That's pretty amazing. Of course, Dropbox has native integration with UbuntuLinux. Still, it's nice to know SugarSync will work on all 3 operating systems I use!

One of the questions that came up is whether you can share folders with SugarSync the same way you do with Dropbox. Dropbox folder sharing is pretty get a link to the folder, then share that. Users then have the option to click on the link and view the contents of the shared folder. When you click on the link, a window like the one below shows up:
Dropbox share folder

On SugarSync, it works similarly, except the options are a bit varied:
Note that you can require a password on SugarSync! As far as I can tell, Dropbox doesn't have that password feature.
