Between Bacula and Backuppc, based on list users experience, which is better to use? I intend 
to backup both Windows and Linux server. Can I use this to backup my linux mail server with 
Zimbra services shutdown? Can I use this to backup windows server machine without using Samba
or it is the only way to go. I intend to read manual of these two when I got my machine to test, for a 
while maybe I can get some insight from those who have already experience using these tools.
