Hello. I am using the Linux Ubuntu v.11.10 64-bit operating system. I have a question to ask you:

Is there an equivalent in Linux Ubuntu v.11.10 64-bit of Windows 7's system restore features?

I assume you may know of what 'system restore' is being an expert and aware of the popular features of the competitive operating systems. If your vaguely familiar or forgot what Windows 7's system restore is, here is a quick synopsis  and from the source – a good link: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/What-is-System-Restore

Now, I am not sure if such a similar feature or function is presently inherent in Linux Ubuntu v. 11.10 or not? If it is inherently built-in, please direct me to the feature location in Linux Ubuntu. If there is some program/program package in the Ubuntu Software Center part of its repositories, please tell me the name of the program/program package so I may install the program/program package. If there is some online reputable and reliable website that offers the steps in Terminal via apt-get or similar, please provide me the webpage name or weblinks here. Please make sure the webpage provides well explained instructions.

I would be nice regardless of the means to acquire the similar Linux Ubuntu system restore, I hope to have a weblink to the author's description of their prospective program/program package I can read and learn too.    

Please reply.

Thank you!

@ stpmt11:

Hello. Nice to meet you.

I appreciate your help. It appears from all the comments here (Yes, just you.); this feature is something that is not too common or apparently not desired by Linux users. Something I would think would be just the extreme opposite in terms of this significant value of such a feature/function. What a surprise!

I have conducted the steps in your comment above and in some of these individual steps, I received the following messages at different individual stages of the process:

1. deb: command not found
2. HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 404 Not Found
2012-04-06 21:21:56 ERROR 404: Not Found.
3. gpg: can't open `le-web.key': No such file or directory

I did install of the program ("Back In Time") thru apt-get without any issues. I found it ("Back In Time") with a search in Dash. I have to set it up and some of the settings are a little confusing, honestly.

So, bottom line, I am not sure *IF* this will even work with everything performed so far?!?!?

I am giving you the credit for this question/thread. I think Microsoft Windows has the upper hand here over Linux when it comes to this particular issue if this is what really the only possible answer I get is from EE! VERY SAD, Linux!

Again, thank you!
