Ubuntu One is Shutting Down!

Bad news for Ubuntu One users. Reportedly Ubuntu One file services are shutting down and you have to download all your data before the deadline.

But Surprisingly there is no such notice on there main Website and they are still accepting New users!! Maybe they will update sooner later.

I got to know about it through the email they sent me. 
Here is the copy of email they sent me:


Hi,
We are writing to you to notify you that we will be shutting down the
Ubuntu One file services, effective 1 June 2014. This email gives
information about the closure and what you should expect during the
shutdown process. 
As of today, it will no longer be possible to purchase storage or music
from the Ubuntu One store. The Ubuntu One file services apps in the Ubuntu,
Google, and Apple stores will be updated appropriately.
As always, your content belongs to you.  You can simply download your files
onto your PC or an external hard drive.  While the service will stop as of
1 June, you will have an additional two months (until 31 July 2014) to
collect all of your content. After that date, all remaining content will
be deleted. 
If you have an active annual subscription, the unused portion of your fees
will be refunded. The refund amount will be calculated from today's
announcement. 
We know you have come to rely on Ubuntu One, and we apologise for the
inconvenience this closure may cause.  We've always been inspired by the
support, feedback and enthusiasm of our users and want to thank you for
the support you've shown for Ubuntu One. We hope that you'll continue to
support us as together we bring a revolutionary experience to new devices.
The Ubuntu One team
 They have a good reason to shut down the service. There is huge competition from Dropbox and G Drive due to which they failed to get that much users.

Whats your take on Ubuntu One File Services Shutting Down?
