The most annoying thing
 - the U1 home page still wants you to sign up;
 - the services page still offers all the options for downloading apps.

Has anyone else wondered if perhaps this has not been thought through
properly?  Sure, it was nice [& gratefully received] while it existed...
but to discontinue and offer [con?] at the same time time is wrong &
gives a bad impression imho.

However, I *do* thank Ubuntu for the free storage whilst it lasted and
for offering reasonable notice [and an extension to reclaim "ya stuff"].
...but 'tis a sad loss.
