hi Martin,
Thanks to your suggestion, I found FSVS is a very promising backup solution.
But I do see the following problems which will prevent it from been adapted
by enterprise user:
1. no UI. most of people who's not techie enough are those need help of a
backup tools. no UI means no go to them
2. linux-only. unforetunately, still lots of people are using Window, and
lots of Mac now.
3. this is really a question: how can you delete old versions from FSVS or
SVN? Say we have 10G of total backup already and quota of this user account
is full. So we need to delete some copies of very old files. I'm not sure
how FSVS can do it.

Maybe you can share some of your thought on this topic.
