Bug Description

Ubuntu users can really benefit from an easy GUI app built-into Ubuntu that allows the user to reset the OS to factory defaults and/or wipe the entire device, similar to the built-in Recovery options Microsoft offers users in Windows 10.

There's already an app in development that works with Ubuntu called 'Resetter.' Maybe this or something like it can be implemented into the next release?
