Hi Oliver,

that is very nice!

IMHO the most "usable" use cases for the Linux Magazin audience would be

1) creating a bootable recovery USB media (stick or disk) to recover a
single server or desktop. Backups happen manually, e.g. when the user plugs
in the USB device (we have an udev rule to automate this :-) )

2) using ReaR in the data center in a more automated fashion. NFS for
simple setups and tests, integrating with "real" backup software for
production setups.

If you want feedback feel free to email me your draft privately.

Kind Regards,
