Linux "If there is a defining feature in Apple's Leopard, it's Time Machine. As cool as it may be, the fact is that we, as Linux users, are obviously not going to see much benefit from this is pitiful. So it's a good thing that open source developers have taken it upon themselves to create something similar, be it not a 'pretty' alternative."

Time Machine seems to be an idea grown out from zfs.

Please try to see the limitations of time machine because the backend is not zfs. If it would, then, well, the whole Time Machine would be very different! Something that neither Linux or Win can achieve. You would always use all your local hdd for previous revisions, not only external hdd. You would have always 10min versions of all the files up as much free space you have.
This is what I had hoped from Leopard.
