I notice in jwz's article, referenced by Hal, that he implicitly doesn't
endorse Time Machine, even as somewhat of a Mac Fanboy himself (and
what he has to say about Window's users doesn't bear repeating... maybe
a case of residual bitterness after the Browser wars...). I like how
jwz ends his article - even if I don't agree with it to the letter...

I completely agree (with Scott) that relying on a proprietry system to
backup data that is valuable enough to be backed up is a bad solution.
