    This work is inspired by Apple's Time Machine back-ups under Mac OS X.

    Even the DejaDup page refers to Time Machine as the "competition".

    I believe this could be very neat in combination with btrfs rollbacks.

    An easy to use backup tool as part of the DE would be great. But a little less Mac OS X inspiration and a little more originality in the design wouldn't hurt IMHO.

    Default I so glad I ditched Gnome.

    Sorry for trolling, but what a bunch of crap these new features are.
    Gnome devs just live in the clouds and don't understand at all the word "usable".
    And they love the Mac.

    I think GNOME 3 as a platform is quite interesting. Good thing Ubuntu sees it as such and did not go forward with the mess that is GNOME Shell.
