It's not the same, Norton Ghost reads NTFS filesystems and copies stuff file-by-file, ghost4unix copies sector-by-sector (like dd) and is much slower.
It also can't do things like resizing the filesystem or skipping files....

It's not *like* dd, it *is* dd.

>file-by-file

Well yes, I see this as a disadvantage. But performance-wise it's sometimes PITA.

How many years must this thread drag on? The other forum has a similar one that's been 2 years running.

Fedora Core 4 and 13 at work.

Took some getting used to, for example I set some stuff with the setsebool command, I then searched for some config file in /etc/ to make the change permanent. Apparently the changes are saved "automagically" ... The same applies to many other commands.
It certainly does things in a very different way once you dig a bit deeper ...

Other than that, the general "desktop" experience (Which is tcsh/vim/tmux/grep/etc.) is pretty much the same ...
