I meant more generally in the inner parts of the operating system. For
instance, if I save a file with Gedit, Apache OpenOffice, Audacity, Nano or
whatever, is that event logged by the operating system somehow? Or if I
delete a file in Nautilus or even in a terminal?

A few years back I used Ubuntu One for some of my folders, and at least it
SEEMED like it somehow was able to monitor such events and write changed or
added files to the Ubuntu One cloud thing. Or maybe the Ubuntu One daemon
just scanned the folders for changes now and then, I don't know.

Kind regards
