    One Drive is unlimited storage now - by the way.

    I had 40 GB free already from the loyalty (whatever it's called) of 10 GB and the 15 GB from their camera roll app plus 15 from somewhere else, not sure where. I have no problem with OneDrive as it doesn't appear to be disappearing anytime soon which a few storage companies have done

    Yeah, I also have 40 GB which is plenty for my purposes. I think it's great that online storage has become so affordable with many free options. Perhaps unlimited storage is meaningful for large businesses, but 40 GB is effectively unlimited for me. There's no reason you can't use more then one service as well if necessary. I use Google Drive to sync across PC and Android phone (I know, this can also be done with OneDrive).

    One problem with OneDrive is it stinks right now. The re-write for Win10 should fix most issues.

    Sync errors, sync cache errors, throttling, etc, all play into it being a mess right now. I rarely use it at home even with a 365 membership because I find it buggy, and annoying. Supporting it on enterprise is a nightmare of itself. Hopefully the Win10 rollout will solve most of the issues.

    Yeah I got it. It's awesome of MS to offer this to everyone. Bing Rewards is not available in my country. I kind of felt left out. But I'm happy now that MS has offered it to everyone.:)
