"System Restore" possibly sounds doable with LVM (Logical Volume
Management) snapshots as described here:
Imagine if a fresh install of Ubuntu Linux made a read/write snapshot
volume of "/" and then mounted that snapshot volume as "/" and then
somehow made regular snapshots after that. It potentially would allow
a Linux system to have the recovery ability of a system running Norton
Goback, being able to recover their system to any point in time up to
a certain limit.
