We should really add a Backup/Disaster Recovery application/utility of the year, it's been long overdue in my opinion. Backups are always a part of a setup, well, should be part of every setup. Here's a quick list of some applications I know of:

Amanda
MySQL-ZRM
Bacula
BackupPC
rsync/Grsync
dump
restore
cpio
DAR
tar
Ark (KDE Archiving Tool)
Mondo Rescue
Areca Backup
FlyBack (rsync based)

Could probably break them up into Single or Networked Systems as well.

Backup Application of the Year sounds like a good addition for next year.

Me too. Partimage for now and then. rsnapshot (http://www.rsnapshot.org/) (based on rsync) for every hour, day or what you like. Great stuff.

I think there should be a non-linux distribution poll if there's time and if it would be easy.
Freebsd
openbsd
netbsd
solaris
darwin
etc.
I would come up with a better list but I'm only familiar with a few popular distributions.

I like the backup category and would vote for rsync.

Shouldn't this be sticky so people will be more likely to hit it first?
