Linux question about limiting user accounts
I'd like to have an option for a guest account on a Linux install that doesn't remember anything the user does from one login to the next.
So, person A logs in as GUEST, checks mail, forgets to log out of mail, but logs out of computer.
Person B logs in as GUEST, person A is not logged into mail any more.
So ... like a Live CD but I can still log in as root and install stuff.
Is this doable?

Incidentally, if you haven’t read it, @rtraister’s profile of Warren’s teaching life is a real inspiration. The bit about her Republican former students not wanting to talk about her because they only had good things to say killed me. https://www.thecut.com/2019/08/elizabeth-warren-teacher-presidential-candidate.html
One of the things I really dislike about StackOverflow is when people come along and tag your question as a duplicate of another question that only has superficial similarity to the question you asked (like they both mention the same exception).
It feels so passive aggressive and there is no way to remedy the situation. No way to challenge the assertion that it's a duplicate and point out how the answers to those supposedly identical questions don't answer your question.
@scott apparently we may want to pre-emptively block fedichive.tk. They’re scraping the fediverse to build a searchable database
My brother just sent me this. It's a font whose glyphs are heavily gerrymandered districts in the US.
It is both awesome and sad.
