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.
