My son is starting to want to use my laptop to play a space program 'Universe Sandbox' since it is educational I want to encourage that.
I am trying to think of ways to child proof the machine. I am not so much worried about protecting him from 'bad' websites as my router has good controls for that. I am thinking about protecting the pc against him running my work programs or changing system settings.. I also just want to make it easier for him to only see his apps. I was thinking about making the pc dual boot and then imaging the PC when I install new apps. This would make it easy for me to roll back in a few mouse clicks. If I had my way, his OS wouldn't save anything unless I tell it to and act more like a windows embedded PC but I dont know any way to turn a regular windows install in to one that acts like a windows embedded install and doesnt save anything.
Do you all think dual booting it is overkill? I know could create him a login on my OS and give his user very little permissions but I am leaning toward dual boot but wanted to get some other opinions.
