Computerworld: Mint also has a variety of other small default programs of its own to make using it a pleasure. The most important of these is the new Backup Tool. This comes with an easy-to-user interface and features incremental backups, compression, and integrity checks. You can also tag your installed software, save this as a list, and then restore the selection on a different computer or on a new version of Linux Mint. This is a rather handy trick if, like me, you find yourself often moving from one PC to another and don't want to jump through the hoops required by imaging software."
