Parent article: DVCS-autosync
I have done this, for many years, across various OSs, with unison. Many file/folder sync tools came and went; MS desktops had various flawed incarnations of "my briefcase"; Novell had one that they pimped for very nice profit; but none never as good as Unison.
Some pretty UIs for unison exist, at least on Mac and Linux -- last I tried ~10 years ago it also worked on Windows but you had to get cygwin's ssh going.
Unison is the measure of file sync tools. Is this DVCS-autosync gadget as good as unison across the board? Better in some clear, significant way? Enlighten us!
