Vista has many new features – so many that it will be difficult to decide which ones to call attention to. For home users and families, the built-in parental controls will be a key selling point. Here’s a good summary of those features – there’s easy to use tools to monitor Internet usage and handle web filtering, to control time spent on the computer, to limit games or applications, and more. If parents use those controls and keep their kids on limited user accounts, there’s a chance that computers will be able to survive being used by kids and teenagers.
