@ David Cantrell: Well, I think you may have right, maybe it’s not Anaconda’s task to do this. I have thought through again, and maybe missed out something in this “migration process” at one point. I mean witch is the best known operating system, where this could be handy? I think Fedora itself for first. Here inside have the “easiest” way to look around and migrate what we need. Could we do easily backup our data? I say yes, if we save EVERYTHING. Everything with the OS together, or what we have marked after installation in inside of this migration application. Creating an image (.img) file nowadays pretty usual, after netbooks are came alive. Ummm, let’s say. Adding an /recovery dir, (or partition) in filesystem could be handy even for netbooks too. Inside in new machines mostly by default we have 160 gigs, or more. This is more than enough space, I think. What if, when Fedora could do time-to-time an updated, compressed .img file (or images) from itself, what is recoverable at anytime? And here comes I think maybe anaconda again. By reinstalling an whole system by so, maybe you will see anaconda at startup, if you are deleting with the image everything to restore all, or parts from the decompressed .img. Because of need of partition handling, but it’s really depends from the situation. It’s fedora itself, or an another OS…. But maybe we could handle it together?
