@iah I used to. When I read about the original founder's stance on it, I switched to an alternative.

@iah From 2015: wired.co.uk/article/kim-dotcom

This and the fact that at the time the client was proprietary made me switch.

To be fair, I don't know how MEGA is today. Anything can change over time, for the better or worse. (I do know that they have open sourced their client, which is definitely a step in the right direction.)

(Also, I haven't heard anything about the "Mega competitor" Kim Dotcom promised to create according to the article since then.)

@iah Why consider anything but Nextcloud? ;)

f you don't want to host it yourself you could rent storage at Hetzner. You get 100 GB for €3.48 per month. You also have 1 TB, 2 TB, 5 TB and 10 TB available as well.


@hund well, maybe that's an option. Going to check it out. Thanks!
