Canonical has announced earlier today that they released a Beta client of their Ubuntu One service for Apple’s Mac OS X operating system.

Unfortunately, I don’t know how many Mac users are thrilled about this cloud storage service from Canonical, considering that there’s Dropbox and iCloud, but it’s always a very good idea to make it cross-platform for those days when you really need to access your files on some strange platform.

Make the Ubuntu One Files universal, because many people work better and more productive with their iPads, I’m just saying.

OK, so now for the technical details, it looks like Canonical made a normal dmg installer, which is basically a drag and drop (yeah, I know you love that) and it’s supposed to work on Mac OS X 10.6 and higher. I’ve tested it on Mac OS X 10.8.2 and it works just fine, and we can prove that with the screenshots posted below.
