Liking Time Machine a lot in Leopard, most of the time

Time machine works well as far as I can tell. It backs up the deltas and makes them super easy to access from the file system, no more proprietary backup file formats, they just use the existing file system which makes it a lot more useful.

I've been using it now for a couple of weeks and it does work. It seems like everytime is consolidates hourly backups for previous days, it says it failed during that process but then the next backup comes along then it's working again. I figure this will get sorted when the Leopard update comes out in a couple of weeks so I'm not that concerned about it.

Overall, upgrading to Leopard has been uneventful, I don't see much in the way of improvements, the visual stuff isn't a real reason to upgrade. The main benefit I get is time machine which is probably one of the best personal backup utilities I've seen.
