Yes, that procedure just creates a list of installed software packages.
If you want to back up your user-specific data, you just make a copy of your 
home directory. This is also a reason many have a separate /home partition, as 
when you reinstall your OS, your existing data is still there without needing 
to copy anything back usually.   Basically it saves you the time needed to 
create the clone image. But one method isn't necessarily better than another.
