Non-Apple AFP can be dangerous with time machine...

Thanks for the caveats! Can you clarify whether a network interruption would lead to a corrupted disk image or just to a corrupted backup?

There is also another issue users should be aware of that has to do with the size of the disk containing your backup image.

That said, I have a couple of backups to non-OSX based AFP shares running successfully now for about a year and I have not yet had any problems. One of these is from a laptop over WiFi with many of the backups interrupted due to the laptop being put to sleep.
