You may take issue with that, but it's the cold hard truth. No normal computer user today will want to have to use a terminal if there's a GUI alternative. So let's talk about those instead. There are a few in the Ubuntu repositories, but I have no experience with any of them. Back In Time, Déjà Dup, Keep, LuckyBackup are a few. Which are good, which are not so good? Pros, cons, features or lack thereof?

At any rate, DARE to refuse terminal use!
Couldn't agree with you more.
