I have imaging software here, but I don't use it. I run multiple computers networked together so all my important files are stored on multiple computers. If any computer dies, I don't care. I just replace it. I don't use Windows so I don't have problems with Windows updates, spyware, viruses, or any of the other Microsoft problems. I can easily load up a new computer with the OS and software in an hour or less even if the old one went up in smoke, so imaging isn't for me. With Linux, a new operating system reload also reloads all my software, so as fast as I can run the OS disk through it, it is ready to go again. If it was a Windows system, all you get with the Windows disk is the OS. Then you start over reloading your software.
