So Microsoft went in-depth with its family safety feature for Windows 8. A lot more restrictions can be placed on children accounts. I would hate to be a teenager on a Windows 8 computer!!

The teens will end up creating an account like that for the parents.

I already hate to work as adult on OS later than XP.

Always Billy the Door seems better to know what I want to do.

I have had a look into the video. What is proposed by M$, IMHO is completelly illegal in Germany.

To log the activity of the user and give it to a third person (even to parents) is forbidden.

I'd love to be a parent on Windows 8, and I'd hate to be a teenager on Windows 8. It's great for parents, keeping their kids safe and all, but as a teenager... Your life WILL suck.
