I was wondering the same thing myself. Since this is a home environment, I'm
not concerned with backing up the state of the system. I'm only concerned
with saving my data - documents, pictures, email, etc. I have a small server,
a portable hard drive, my laptop and my desktop. I keep a copy of my data on
all four, synced via Unison. My server and desktop are Linux, my laptop runs
Windows (company machine, no choice) and Unison runs on both and syncs them
