[Dirvish] Hauntingly similar to Dirvish

Is it just my mis-perception, or is this new Apple Time Machine
(http://www.apple.com/macosx/features/timemachine.html) backup I hear
described in their new "Leopard" OS (not to mention the barely-developed
Linux clone called Flyback - http://code.google.com/p/flyback/) eerily
familiar?

Sure, they've got a pretty Apple-style GUI, some logic added to skip cache
files, pre-configure the expiration process. and resume after a shut-down,
but it's essentially the same idea we've been using for years.

I'm not sure whether to feel validated or ripped-off. What do you think?
