Dropbox for Linux

Linux

A Dropbox client for Linux has been released.
Unfortunately, the binary is released as a Nautilus plugin, which means that every user on your computer will be forced to register on Dropbox after logging in. (there's even no "Cancel" button on the registration window).

What do you mean by "forced to register". I had to do this manualy.

At login time, dropbox will pop-up a window to connect your userid to a dropbox account. If you have such an account, you will be presented a window in which you must fill in your DB uid/pwd. If you don't have such an account, the window will force you to choose 'New account'. You cannot terminate, or cancel the signup process. Closing the window will respawn a new sign-on window.

I see, i filled in my account. So i didn't notice that.
