Snapshots in a Linear Process

One common use of snapshots is in a development process, as a way to save each step in a linear process. That way, as you add new, untested code to a project, you can always revert to a prior known working state of the project when newly added code does not work as expected.

Another example of using snapshots is a linear process is a computerized training course. You can take snapshots of each lesson starting point, so you can instantly revert to the appropriate place for each student — skipping lengthy computer preparation time.
