Linux and Backups - So Hard and So Easy!

Most people are unfamiliar with the Linux Operating System, so in order for them to understand why it is crucial to have a Linux backup plan, they need to know about how the system works and its history. Essentially Linux was designed by people with a great interest in technology and wanted to use their knowledge to help people. They realized that people were tired of paying large of sums of money for basic computing functionality and built Linux, a completely free operating system letting people save significantly on computing costs.
However, since Linux is maintained by technical experts and hobbyists, it's pretty darn hard to do anything fancy with for average Joe and doesn't come with some creature comforts like an easy way to backup data.
When people use an Apple or Windows system, the computer will typically come with a restore disc. This essentially saves different memory points on the computer, which accomplishes multiple tasks. The first thing is that people are be able to perform a system restore, which is extremely easy. A few clicks and the computer is running at an earlier date where it was running more efficiently.
