Something very interesting to ask you guys !!
Do you remember playing with Windows System and the option "Last Good Configuration" .I remember those days when one of my friend activated that option on January 2004 and on September 2004 he corrupted the filesystem.He did something and brought the system working on January.He could see all the setting back and folders he created at that moment.
Mostly I see that Linux Sysadmin Like me who are very careless with their work tend to loose the data frequently.All I was thinking if this option is also there for we Linux Buddies...
Do let me know if any.
I think it would be great option to keep activate that option daily so that We can get back the system healthy.
Looks OK but a bit alpha maybe? But like I said before: maybe it suits your purpose, so you are the only one who is able to test and confirm it does...
Personally I think that In Backups We Trust. (and actually testing restores work fine ;-p)
You could always create an ISO of your present configuration and use that as your 'backup' ie: get all the applications just right and store your data on a separate drive/backup regularly. That way, if trouble occurs it is a simple install of your ISO and a bit of copying data.
