Mr. Turpin,

Do you want OSS or just free? When I tried to use Rsync at work, all 
Bill's freedom-hating fanboys
laughed at me and pointed me at this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robocopy

I shall reluctantly agree that it seems to do a reasonable job and 
probably won't be (deliberately) broken by a Microsoft upgrade.

Now I feel dirty. I have just discovered on a trip to Germany though 
that my boss's boss is trying out Ubuntu at home and he likes it :-)
