Probably.  I am an amanda fan, and installed a terrabyte drive so I could 
setup virtual tapes for amanda on it. This machine isn't a *buntu, but I do 
backup those parts of a Hardy install that are precious every night with 
amanda.  When I set it up, I was surprised that the Hardy version of amanda 
would work against the bleeding edge version I run here as I track 
development snapshots, building from the tarball, which may change several 
times a week. Amanda is old enough to vote and still under active 
development.  The 2 versions (client on the Hardy box, full server here) work 
flawlessly together.
