Don’t tinker unless you’re a tinkerer.

Tim Bray (who is a god amongst men) had some really fun getting a new Mac running from a backup. This is why I don’t recommend anything except very standard products to people who aren’t born tinkerers. Building your own stuff is easy(ish - if you’re a tinkerer). Maintaining it so that you can make it work again on a brand new computer is not so easy. www.tbray.org
