iOS on iPad Pro 12.9" here. My old Linux desktop died, have an old Windows laptop for iTunes mostly & have a low-power linux server with MythTV, but I am primarily using the iPad. Still trying to figure out what I want in a primary "Desktop" computer. Debating home built, Gaming Laptop or maybe a Steam Machine. Leaning against the Gaming Laptop. I think it my be a little while till then though.

The windows 10 updates are opt out. There are 2 settings. Share over lan & share over you internet connection.

  Win10 has very bad defaults on a number of things. Reseting default apps without clearly showing that you can prevent it, many privacy settings, no parental controls without a MS account(i.e. requires internet to set up), forced updates & probably alot more. My thoughts on the updates it that they should have a setting to delay updates, say 1-14 days. I do think people should be updating, but knowledgable people should have the option to delay.

I 2nd Openvpn. Though I don't think it is something you'd have to have on all the time. Set up the router at Loc. B with Openvpn so you can log in. Set up static DHCP addresses for all devices. You can then connect from A or work or wherever to check logs or allow/block a specific device. I'd use personally OpenWRT for the router's os. Set it up so that you son's devices are routed through a log of some sort before leaving to the outside.
