On Leopard and Super Duper!

[QUOTE=JAC II;15193]THIS IS NOT AN ATTACK ON SUPERDUPER.
But I am curious whether Time Machine will do the same thing that SuperDuper does - I understand it has the "go back in time feature" but does Time Machine allow you to "clone" like Super Duper does?

I also heard that Time Machine takes up a trendendous amount of disk space.


I am hearing the same, and worse, that Leopard has bugs , that SD ! as well as iDefrag and iPartition have problems with it. Well, this is certainly not scandalous as Innovative OS'es are complex animals and prone to have bugs.
My points , therefore, are :
1) Wait and see. I'm presently running Tiger and SD ! meets all my backup needs with only 30 GB external drive space and I don't see what more I could get from Time Machine.
2) In about 6 or 9 months the coast will be clear, Leopard fixed, and , most of all , I hope Apple will propose some new hardware ( The Power G5 , for ex. is the same since more than one year). Then I'll upgrade and buy a new machine with Leopard. I'm especially excited about XCode3
