Mint's system synchronization ability is great. During week days I use my laptop and put new stuff and code on it. On weekend I my desktop PC as a primary computing machine and I can simply copy all settings and new files to my backup media. Hey, I can write a little shell script for that. So I can simply execute it from the media I want to copy to and it backups all data. Then I wait for it to be done (which shouldn't take long since it only updates the new/changed files), plug it into my desktop PC and call on single command copying and gnome restart. Yep, this sounds like a nice shell script to write. Time to move on, boy!
