In college, I mostly used Dropbox to handle all of my file syncing needs. As I approached graduation, I setup an Owncloud droplet (which is now a Nextcloud instance) to supplant my Dropbox usage.

This post will highlight some of those realizations, and why I ultimately decided to sell my Bonobo laptop.
