I've been using it for awhile now. I use it on my Macs, but my wife also
uses it on her work peecee running windoze 98. It works a treat so far, and
we've been exchanging photos and stuff on it. I can't see any real problems
with it apart from the fact that nowadays, 2GB doesn't seem like enough
space to have to worry about taxing it. I suspect you're likely to tax your
internet connection before you tax Dropbox, right up until you hit the
limit. I have to admit I'm not ready to pay for the extra (more realistic)
space, since I'm not willing to committing anything serious to the cloud. I
just use it to get large-ish files from one place to another when I want to
share stuff with family or others.
