If you are going to write a backup how-to I suggest that in addition to
explaining your own method of backup using GNU tools you give a general
overview of existing (free and even non-free) backup products for Linux.
You can this way transfer the experience you have adquired working with many
different packages and tell the users what they have to look for when
shopping for a backup tool. Just imagine that a friend has asked you which
tool he should use and that you explain to him in easy to understand terms.
