What would be the best Linux based solution for backup (later maybe tape backup too). There are Bacula, Amanda, and others. Any suggestions which to learn ?
(Now I use compressed tarballs simply)

I was recently was facing same decision and I went with Amanda. It was hard choice because both are good and both have weaknesses. So, my decision boiled down to personal preferences, i.e. GUI vs. command line, dependency on database or no database, etc. My advice go with one that fits you better - they are both good.
I have eared about rdiff-backup which is simple to use, and does the job well.
