Google Drive for Linux is coming Yesterday, search giant Google announced the launch of the oft-rumored Drive cloud service.
While the announcement was a large success, there was a small group of vocal critics; Linux users for whom the service was not supported.

Google Docs Community Manager Teresa Wu has come to the rescue today, pronouncing: "We're working on Linux support--hang tight!"

As it currently stands, Linux users cannot sync files automatically, like their Windows and OSX counterparts can, making the service nothing more than a cyber locker with less appeal than the Ubuntu One service for Linux users. Ubuntu One offers 5GB free storage, as well, and sync capabilities.
