ZDNet: Time Machine is Brilliant and Fantastic

Time Machine is everything that Apple says it is, according to Adrian Kingsley-Hughes at ZDNet on Monday. More than that, it's brilliant and fantastic.

"Rather than waffle on about Time machine, Iím just going to cut to the point. Is Time Machine as good as Apple wants us to believe it is? In a word, yes. My experiences with Time Machine so far lead me to conclude that itís not just good, itís brilliant. Itís fantastic. Itís what I wish every backup tool was like," Mr. Kingsley-Hughes wrote.

The author cited three major concerns about backup software and why Time Machine handles each case beautifully:

Initial testing by Kingsley-Hughes revealed that, "Time Machine is the best backup tool that Iíve ever used -- I wish that there was a tool that was as good for Windows (there isn't, I know, because I've tested dozens)."


Note: for those who need to continue using Apple's Backup 3, version 3.1.2 for Leopard was posted last Friday.
