Choosing a "reliable" backup utility (and strategy) will depend on specific requirements and usage. All the utilities mentioned in the plasticsfuture article can be appropriate in certain contexts and it's wise to be aware of the differences. I'm grateful for the article's long overdue analysis of criteria that many users and even some developers tend to overlook, which can be crucial information if [meta]data integrity of backups/restores is a priority.

For me it would be foolish to ignore those details in discussions about pros/cons/comparisons of different OS X backup utilities but other people may not care that much.
