Does that really surprise you? Different OS, different things to do and not to do ... What you say is like "I know how to drive a 5000$ car but I can't fly 25M$ super-sonic jet plane: why not?"awcreamsoda wrote: What I used to use for OS X dodesn't seem to work

And how do you mean to perform a restore if disaster strikes? Every backup procedure is only as reliable as the restore procedure. Sure, there are GUI backup tools and you can install and use them ... But what if your system all of a sudden won't boot anymore? How do you then plan to get into that GUI tool ... ?
