Another BackupPC convert here! I actually wrote something similar to BackupPC but gave up when I found Bacula. I thought I was going to have to start writing my own again, but thankfully I stumbled upon this! I liked Bacula but got frustrated with corrupted backups and trying to keep track of "Volumes", not to mention that updating also meant updating all the clients as well! I have a mix of OS X (10.6,10.5,10.4 and yes even a 10.3 ), Linux, and Windows so keeping the clients up to date is a pain! Finally decided to look for something new, found BackupPC and the rest is history.
