I do have privacy concerns since my most precious data is all
managed via Org-mode.

My system with four machines (1x Win7, 3x Linux) is:

- home desktop: 
  - gitwatch + auto-commit: committing all changes when I save a
    file (or a file gets synced)
  - unison over ssh: sync with my own root-server via 10min cron-job

- root server:
  - just providing data and sync services
  - no Emacs processing

- home notebook:
  - unison over ssh to root server (10min cron-job)

- work (Win7):
  - manual unison sync in the morning & evening

Since I close Emacs when I'm done working on a machine, I avoid
merge hell so far.

I never forget to sync because Org is very important to me and the
sync jobs don't just sync Org-mode files but my whole core data-set
of several hundreds megabytes. I tend to use this functionality also
for "high-frequency" backup of my most important data.
