I think the consumer market for this doesn't care how their files are backed up. They just want it to work.

RE: "it just works" - you're right of course, and we're definitely trying to make it as simple as possible.

Yeah, if your thing means I can sync my data across computers without you seeing any of it, I'm never using Dropbox again.

The business or enterprise markets are massive though.
