Why not add the default in Linux Mint is a very useful program Systemback?

Systemback - This program allows you to create system restore point in the event of a failure of the system to restore it. It can also do a backup of the data and write them as image on a flash drive. I think it will be very useful to users.

The PPA link is on the YouTube page already, so it’s more of an upstream (Ubuntu) affair to add it to the repos. But why make it a default ? It’s certainly nothing for the average user ;-)

Make Ubuntu add to repos is fine but not install by default

Promoted, with some reservations. This would be useful (I've run into a situation or two when I could have used it). But I'm on the fence as to whether or not it's something that would be important to have as a default application. But, as it doesn't appear to be in the Ubuntu/Mint repositories, I would at least recommend something like this be added to the repositories as an option (might be good to contact Ubuntu upstream for that request), if not included in the default applications.

Benefits of the program Systemback compared with Backup:
1. Understandable and familiar to the novice user interface;
2. As in OS Windows creates a system restore point. Which is visible in the menu. Points you can add a few to choose from the list of required.
3. If you accidentally or intentionally deleted the system folder and the system does not start, due to the fact that Systemback can create images in ISO format, we are able to make a bootable USB flash drive or disk and restore the system.
4. you can make a backup of your system (duplicate) and share it with your friend with all installed programs and files.
5. Before you create a backup ISO image you can specify what files to add, and what should not.
6. automatically at the specified date backup.

Video helped nothing and I still have no idea who makes it.
I do not want it by default.

Systemback, has more functionality and can create bootable flash drives, recover, even a dead system. Mint Backup, it can not do.

You have to make a case.
Who makes it?
Why use this instead of Mint Backup?
