What history? Browser history (that usually is a function of the browser; the how-to varies from one browser to another)? BASH history? Something else?

Welcome to LQ Please review that link.

You want no record, boot off of a LiveCD/DVD/USB and don't have the capability to write to the disk. Each boot is exactly the same as before, no saved data. Downside is if you want customization you have to then perform that each time you boot.

Hello and welcome to LQ.

At least one of the big distro's has a way to boot time option to a special mode where it won't save anything. I get the feeling it is OpenSuse but can't recall where I saw it.

If you have linux installed then there are a number of places that all this might be located. Just what all do you want to erase.
