I'm using ownCloud quite a long time now and I am very pleased how it simplifies my file handling in my everyday life. I'm using it as a oneClick installer on my preferred hoster which reduces the administrational effort to a minimum. It just runs. Also very notable is the fact that they really listen to their customers and community. They faced some stability problems in the past (software itself and mobile apps) but it seems they put a lot of effort into making it more stable. In the current state I find it more than reliable and I'm excited about future developments.

Why I don't use Dropbox, GoogleDrive etc. Well, for the obvious reason, I don't want my data be stored somewhere in the US. With the recent revealments of Apple's iCloud etc. I find my decision to use ownCloud more than confirmed.

Why I don't use Nextcloud There's a lot of fuzz going around since the fork in 2016. I decided to use ownCloud because it works more stable and I like their focus on the main concept - secure and reliable file sharing. Having a look on Nextclouds github acc shows that they are copying nearly everything from ownCloud which leads me to the idea that the main knowledge is at ownCloud and Nextcloud is not able to develop core features on their own.

A quick tip: If you like to test and use ownCloud instantly, install it for free as a ready-to-use virtual machine image via Univention's App Catalog. This image contains the app itself and a UCS runtime environment. Apart from being quickly installed and free, you also get regular updates for the whole stack.

I guess my tech saavy is not enough for this wretched software. The install fails. Log in fails. Too many tweaks are necessary just to see if this atrocious software is even for you. There is either a glut of tech info that you have to be a coder to understand or there is absolutely nothing for a manual to walk someone through the process of setting this up using an existing website with unlimited storage. Either way, if you are not a coder...don't go this route!!!!

ownCloud Community requires self hosting, but I don't have a server. ownCloud Online has a free trial, but it doesn't have a free plan. After the trial ends, it costs 11.99 EUR / month = $13.34 USD / month.
