I have the same question as trident44 and couldn’t find the right answer on TM FAQs (great site though!) nore on the linked TM troubleshooting site … Don’t know if I'm just blind but could someone please either just post the answer to trident44’s question here (a short “yes” or “no” would already help a lot for the beginning), or reveal where I can find the exact article on TM FAQs?
Thanks in advance!
Feels a bit weird anyway that we kinda seem to be the only two persons on the web who want to know this. Isn't it quite an interesting point wheter you can or can’t keep all your files you've produced since your last backup? … Or am I missing something here?

Can the items I select to restore also be system settings and basic stuff like that? Or can I only restore files and apps that way?
(Sorry, I’m not very familiar with Time Machine)

http://Pondini.org/TM/14.html describes how to restore the entire system. If you're worried about losing stuff, then restore to an empty volume or another disk. That'll preserve your current volume.27" i7 iMac mid '11 SL, MLion, OS X Mavericks (10.9.1), G4 450 MP w/Leopard, 9.2.2

Ok, now I’ve found quite a simple way: I wanted to reboot the operating system and keep my files, and learned I can do so by holding command + R while starting the computer to get to the Mac OS X Utilities where I could reinstall OS X. And that was just it.
