You can turn it off via system preference. BTW, what is being loyal to SD has to do with not wanting to use Time Machine? Both are just tools and they both serve different purposes. I use both tools to protect my system from failures and also for my sanity. Besides, TM doesn't ask for your intervention and does its function silently in the background. It's slow the first time since it has to back up the whole drive (except you have an option to exclude files, folders, and drives), but subsequent backups are rather quick. I have never noticed my system slowing down except that my external hard drive is working. Recently I recovered several emails (due to corruption) and images, and I would not have been able to do this w/o Time Machine.

I know everyone is entitled to one's opinion, but I'm getting sick of people trashing Time Machine w/o really understanding what its purpose is for.
