Dump because it's been saving my bacon for years, and I ain't seen anything that isn't Just Another Dump At Heart plus window dressing and/or helpers.

I use Clonezilla. It is great tool with many options, supports cloning using quad core processors (usuable when we want to compress image file). As a matter of fact, i use it for all my systems (Arch, Slackware, Ubuntu...and even Windows). Clonezilla is something that gives me great controll over backup process, also, there is terminal built in, command line available. I can record cd and start using it - i don't like backups apps that works with shadow clones (on running system) like Symantec backups apps.

You should include in this list Dropbox and SpiderOak, or create a new appropriate category.
