Faronics’ Deep Freeze offers Mac users a system wide ”do-over”
Have you ever screwed up your system so badly with an installed application or hack that you wish you could just start over with…well…starting over? Or maybe you have a Mac that is perfectly configured with everything properly installed, but you have to share it with someone who carries with them an aura that corrupts systems within a 3 foot radius of them. Wouldn’t you like to be able to restore things back to their pristine contition after this walking disaster departs? Faronics Deep Freeze claims to be the answer and it is now available in a Universal Binary.
Deep Freeze Mac with ARD Integration provides a completely non-restrictive working environment where there is no need to be concerned about system misconfiguration, or malicious damage to a Mac OS X system; a simple restart eradicates all changes and ensures that the standard system configuration is available at all times. All changes to a machine are temporary for that working session, including installation of new software, removal of programs, and application preference configuration. The need for IT professionals to perform rebuilds, re-image, or troubleshoot computers is eliminated, resulting in a reduction in IT expenditures and an increase in computer uptime.
A demo of Deep Freeze Mac with ARD integration for Intel can be downloaded while a registration of the software will run you USD$29.95. Not bad….wonder how well it works.
