Useless Win7 Parental Controls


Useless Win7 Parental Controls

Empirical results in ongoing (but opportunistic) study of time controls in Win 7 vs Linux:

Linux (OpenSuSE) machine parental controls:

-time until bypassed by kids (under 10 years of age) : currently 18 months and counting

Win7 machine parental controls:

-time until bypassed by kids (under 10 years of age): 7 days.

Not to mention Win7 only allows controls in 1 hour increments vs minute resolution in Linux.
