What's the value add of this over the existing OneDrive support via GNOME Online Accounts?

What's the value add of this over the existing OneDrive support via GNOME Online Accounts?

The main value of "OneDrive free client" is that it will support "OneDrive for Business/365 Support"
Also it Includes state caching, Real-Time file monitoring with Inotify and Resumable uploads.

And as far as I understand the gnome native client only have read only access to your OneDrive. So the onedrive free client has a major advantage over the default option for people using onedrive.

I hope this provides you more inside into why I would like this package.

Also my information comes from this article from 2017. So my information might not be up to date.
