Rescuezilla backup/imaging

This looks to be a nice backup/imaging alternative to Clonzilla.
Looks to be a graphical version of Clonezilla.  It now uses the Clonezilla format, for full interoperability with Clonezilla.
I will have to give it a try and report back my assessment.

I was going to say that we already have a great GUI image backup program in Timeshift. And recall that I was a big Clonezilla pusher back in the day. But I see now that this distribution will also backup Windows and Mac partitions. And that it has more restoration features over Timeshift. Regardless, It's always good to have alternatives. Let us know how it goes, Bill.
