Dropbox vs Ubuntu-One

My request for using Ubuntu-One Beta was approved by Canonical, so I immediately made a small (& un-scientific) test. I put 13 files, totaling 23,4MB, first in Ubuntu-One and then in Dropbox.
It took 5′ 56″ for Ubuntu-One and 4’25” for Dropbox in my ADSL line to synchronize the files. For the time being, Dropbox is faster. Furthermore it has the significant advantage of being cross-platform, while Ubuntu-One works only in Ubuntu. I use Ubuntu both at home and work, but I also use Fedora and rarely Windows and moreover I want to share files with people that don’t use Ubuntu.
