Since these were my offsite backups I was using Truecrypt which drove the use
of ext3 and Linux. Also I wanted to be sure in the event of a disaster I could
easily find a machine to read them. I had reservations about just any machine
being able to boot the 2009.06 live cd and read them. But now that more
distros are starting to support ZFS, I'll probably switch over to it for the
external USB drive backups.
