I've been using SpiderOak for the past year.  One of the main reasons
I went with them is because they supported a variety of operating
systems: Linux, Windows and MAC.  Now they have support for android
phones.  Sync work fine as well as backups.  Their support has been
helpful the couple times I had questions.  I will probably go with
them again next year.

The space on iDrive for that price would be hard to pass on, if I
didn't have Linux boxes.  You'd only get 150G for the iDrive price on
SpiderOak.  But if you think you could keep your backups under 100G,
then you could save $50.00.  It's hard to estimate growth sometimes
