I've been using sbackup (http://sbackup.sourceforge.net/) on Ubuntu
for some time now. It is simple and works ok for what I want to do. In
Lucid, the backend still works but the frontend is broken
suggestions are to move on to nssbackup
(https://launchpad.net/nssbackup), the proposed successor to sbackup,
although they say its a fork, but does not share any code(?). The plus
with nssbackup is that its compatible with sbackup.
Then there is deja dup which looks interesting, esp. backing up to
Amazon S3 (https://launchpad.net/deja-dup).
What's the recommended Ubuntu way for doing backups?
