Ubuntu shutting down?

I am not a techy person at all. I got this in my email and my question is... Is it true? What should I do?


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


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"
