Shouldn't this category include the likes of SpiderOak and Dropbox, which are automatic backup and syncing utilities?

I had to vote for rsync because grsync was not listed.
grsync is great - very versatile.

A lot of my servers are virtualized. I've done a ton simply using Vbox-tools, tar, and scp in a cron job, with back-up files themselves managed by cleanup cron jobs.

I voted for the only tool that I use that's actually in the list.

Déjà Dup is the default shipped with Ubuntu. I'd say that at least warrants for putting it on the list.

I voted for rsnapshot. It's used on a daily basis. FSArchiver has an honorable mention, it is quite useful on a as need basis.

I use Clonezilla for images but lately it has been given me problems with jfs.

One I do not see on the list is Redo Backup and Recovery. I have found this to be a excellent tool in my backup tool kit. I have backed up and restored many a laptop (many dual boot) with the fine gem of a program. Its only short coming is it fails on systems with jfs.

Ah right, so this isn't restricted. Maybe it could be added next year

Cheers,
