I use CCC as my imaging program before doing major OS upgrades, or
whenever I'm fiddling around with disks or other hardware that might
fsck up a hard drive.
I've also used it as a snapshot of sorts when I'm doing something odd
like trying to merge home directories, iPhoto or iTunes databases, etc.
It's straightforward and I don't need to read a man page to remember
how to use it for one-offs.
I don't know that I'd use it for regular backups, though.
Bombich did a lot of the original net boot investigation and testing to
offer OS X sys admins options and ideas for automation. I still need to
test some ideas of my own that his presentation at Mac World inspired.
