Yarışma Özeti

I would be grateful if you could answer some questions.

I want to be able to install an open source operating system (e.g. Ubuntu) on multiple device with exactly two user accounts:

1) Admin
-this account is password protected
-The user can connect to WiFi
-once logged in, the admin can run updates, install software, browse freely etc.
2) User
-no password is needed or password is blank
-once logged in, the system is heavily locked down
-The user can connect to WiFi
-The user can only access a single specified website e.g. [login to view URL] and pages within it - no other web access is allowed
-There is only one browser (Chrome/Firefox)

Questions
A) What operating system and settings would you recommend? I would like to be able to run this on a variety of devices.
B) Which way round is this best done? Install a standard build and set up each machine separately, or make an image of the described system with a very customized set of parameters that fits all these requirements and put it on a USB drive, or something in between. I'm wanting to know what is possible.
C) The website will have php, MySQL and user accounts. Ideally, I would like to know if the user is logging in using one of these devices or another device that was not set up in this way. Not sure if that is possible as someone could forge their identity/user agent perhaps? How would I best go about identifying the origin?
D) Any other thoughts?

    I'd also say that Chrome in Kiosk mode should be suitable for the locked down account - just too lazy too take a screenshot of that, while Mr. porro already stated it.

    Looks like your are describing kiosk functionality. There are distros developed exactly for kiosks, but as others said here - better to know variety of devices before hands.

    Do you want to run the same os on multiple devices simultaneously (Admin on one and User on another device) ?

    You list ubuntu and chrome os, but appear not to have used any linux system modified per your preferences for long. Why chrome os/ubuntu? Looking for some feature present only in these ? If devices can be listed, choice narrows. If experiment with a few distros, options ( and questions ) will multiply and help build a stable system. Unless the exercise is academic (Q & A) and you are not seeking am image file.
