This is a general-purpose data backup tool for Linux systems. Powered by BorgBackup, RSync, and RClone it is designed to run on Linux distributions based on Debian and Ubuntu.

Umix OS is a Linux distribution based on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS with Unity 7 desktop. This distribution is for people who miss Unity, and who are not satisfied with other desktops that try to replicate the same experience.
