Reboot for pristine state?

Is there a distro or strategy/approach for returning an OS to a pristine state on every reboot? (almost like TailsOS)

I would try an initrd hook that when mounting rootfs instead setups an overlayfs built of the original root filesystem and a tmpfs.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
