      ownCloud vs Nextcloud opinions
      Some users think ownCloud is a great alternative to Nextcloud, some don't.
      NextCloud is a fork of OwnCloud, features are almost the same, so take a look at both.

      Dropbox vs Nextcloud opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Dropbox is still a legitimate alternative to Nextcloud, but it might have issues that some users think are important.

      Dropbox is a SaaS offering from an entity under control and compelled to cooperate with United States military and intelligence programs, not an on-prem solution. Your data is subject to wide-scale mass surveillance and tampering under USA PRISM and similar violations of online privacy and security and the whim of entities that do not honor legal due process.

      Dropbox isn't self-hosted, has a 2 GB limit and is just for storage, while nextcloud is a full self-hosted cloud.

      brianlacy NextCloud is groupware. MEGA is a file-sync storage solution. Just because they have overlapping functionality, does NOT make them interchangeable.
