    Out of curiosity - why do you prefer one over the other? Always looking to see what others are doing.

    I haven't used Dropbox in while but I found that SugarSync was a little more flexible in sharing files from my desktop computers... You don't have to specify just one folder that is then uploaded to the cloud. You can choose any folders, on your drive to sync. It does also have a 'magic folder' that works the same way that the dropbox folder does.

    EDIT: I also like how in the Web and Android client it shows you the different computers that you have attached to the account and you can browse the files you have shared based on the computer that they reside on (Rather than just one big folder with all subfolders and everything in it)

    I like SugarSync's streaming interface better than Dropbox (for music)

    Yup, pictures go to picasa, music to google music and amazon, docs and files to dropbox and box.net.
