Also just because you use a friend's Mac does not mean you know what you are talking about.... Time Machine is better then Windows System Restore... System Restore can not bring back deleted files where Time Machine can.. Also I bet (if you did try out a Mac) your friend was using a Beta Version of Leopard and not the full version that I as running... Again you have no clue.. That like me talking about Linux even tho I only mess with it a couple times... So I guess I know what I am talking about when it comes to Linux even tho I only used it here and there... Please!... You are so full of it and have no clue... Take you blind self some where else with your false and misinformation..
This will prove you have no clue...
System Restore http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/u...emrestore.mspx
Every time you download or install a new game, application, or software update, you make changes to your computer. Sometimes that change may make your system unstable. Have you ever wanted to go back to the way it was? With System Restore, you can.
System Restore works a lot like the Undo command in Microsoft Word. You can use System Restore to remove any system changes that were made since the last time you remember your computer working correctly. System Restore does not affect your personal data files (such as Microsoft Word documents, browsing history, drawings, favorites, or eâ€“mail) so you won't lose changes made to these files
Time Machine http://www.apple.com/macosx/features/timemachine.html
Back up everything.
Time Machine backs up your system files, applications, accounts, preferences, music, photos, movies, and documents. But what makes Time Machine different from other backup applications is that it not only keeps a spare copy of every file, it remembers how your system looked on a given day — so you can revisit your Mac as it appeared in the past.
Go back in time.
Enter the Time Machine browser in search of your long-lost files and you see exactly how your computer looked on the dates you’re browsing. Select a specific date, let Time Machine find your most recent changes, or do a Spotlight search to find exactly what you’re looking for. Use Quick Look to verify the file’s contents if you wish. Then click Restore and Time Machine brings it back to the present. Time Machine restores individual files, complete folders, iPhoto libraries, and Address Book contacts. You can even use Time Machine to restore your entire computer if need be.
How Time Machine works.
Beneath the hood, Time Machine is every bit as remarkable as it is on the outside. It’s based on stable and secure Mac OS X core technologies (like the HFS+ file system), automatically tracks file changes, and is aware of file system permissions and user access privileges. Bottom line: It’s working with more information than other backup utilities and doesn’t need to bother you for input.
Pick a disk. Any disk.
You can designate just about any HFS+ formatted FireWire or USB drive connected to a Mac as a Time Machine backup drive. Time Machine can also back up to another Mac running Leopard with Personal File Sharing, Leopard Server, or Xsan storage devices.
Back up the whole family.
The moment you choose a Time Machine drive, a single folder is created on the drive. Inside this folder is a subfolder for each Mac being backed up. (Yes, multiple Mac systems can share the same backup drive.) And within each subfolder is another list of folders — one for every backup performed on that Mac. Time Machine uses a standard file system to store all of its information. Nothing hidden anywhere.
If you can see System Restore can only undo changes to application and Software updates.. Time Machine back up all files and undo changes application and software updates...
