So I've got a work MacBook, which will become work's in three days, and a linux machine I'll use in the interim before Apple releases The Best Computer Of All Time. I've got a fairly advanced setup on this machine: macports, apache, mysql, dotfiles, etc. Will timemachine be able to restore these? And what does it do restoring 10.5 if the new machine is loaded with Snow Leopard? I'm a little nervous about the reliability of the backup... Also, I'm doing it to a 160g freeagent drive. Hopefully that drive doesn't fail?
