You can now bridge the gap between your Android phone and Ubuntu PC with the UbuntuOne Files cloud service.

While every major platform has a cloud solution, Linux Ubuntu is not an exception. With UbuntuOne evolving as a worthy Dropbox alternative, Android users can now download their UbuntuOne Files to their PC.

To clear things out, the UbuntuOne cloud service does not require an Ubuntu PC. It can work with Windows PC or Mac, but it performs best with the Linux OS. It also provides a seamless folder and file management experience for Ubuntu users. You can download the UbuntuOne Files app at the Android Market, giving you an immediate access to the files stored in your UbuntuOne cloud account. The app has a built-in photo viewer, and hands off other file formats to its default viewer.

If you have a premium UbuntuOne account, you can also add its music app to stream songs from your account to your phone. Are you using your UbuntuOne Files already? Feel free to share your impressions on this new Android app at the comments.

Architect Ray Ozzie, successor of Bill Gates is now saying goodbye to Microsoft. For unknown reasons, this was revealed to employees via email by Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.

Microsoft announced through a letter from CEO Steve Ballmer that Chief Software Architect Ray Ozzie is leaving the company. Ray is the successor of Bill Gates, he was the one who had put Microsoft in the clouds.

Here’s the email that Steve Ballmer sent Microsoft employees:

From: Steveb

Sent: Monday, October 18, 2010

To: Microsoft – All Employees

Subject: Ray Ozzie Transition

This past March marked a significant milestone for the company when, in a speech at the University of Washington, I sent a message to the world that we’re ‘all in’ when it comes to the cloud. In that speech I noted that Ray’s Internet Services Disruption memo nearly five years ago, and his work since, stimulated thinking across the company and helped catalyze our drive to the cloud.

As a company, we’ve accomplished much in the past five years as we look at the cloud and services. Windows Live now serves as a natural web-based services complement to both Windows and Office. SharePoint and Exchange have now decidedly embraced the cloud. And by conceiving, incubating and shepherding Windows Azure, Ray helped ensure we have a tremendously rich platform foundation that will enable app-level innovation across the company and by customers for years to come.
