Back up an entire system, including user data, to an installable Live CD/DVD. The last stable release of remastersys was in 2012 which means three years ago.

It can create a livecd of the installed system and works with Ubuntu and its derivatives systems. You can either make a distributable livecd or make a backup of your entire system, so you can use it later if something goes wrong with your operating system.
