I wanted to know when will the Windows version of Ubuntu one be available? Does anyone have any information about it?
We will be releasing a public beta of the Windows client within the next couple weeks. When it's ready, we'll be sure to announce it on the Ubuntu One blog: http://voices.canonical.com/ubuntuone
Ahem... allow me to quote:
Recognizing that many of us are sometimes forced to use legacy operating systems, Ubuntu One is coming to the rescue. You're invited to beta test our new Windows client for syncing files — just sign up for our free Ubuntu One Basic plan and install the software to contribute.
The Ubuntu One Roadmap says that "Windows file sync" is coming as part of the Ubuntu 10.10 release:

- Addresses the needs of the many Ubuntu users who operate in a mixed platform environment of Ubuntu + Windows
- Will support syncing files between Windows desktops and your Ubuntu One personal cloud
Also, see the the Ubuntu Weekly Newsletter, Issue 208 for the week August 22nd - August 28th, 2010., which says:

It already has according to their website:
But only for subscribers.
We are also extending our platform support to include a Windows client, which will be available in Beta very soon.
