Advantages of Windows 8
Parents will surely like Windows 8 because it has integrated Family Safety features which allow parents to keep track of when and how their children use their Windows devices and to set limits on which websites, apps, and games the kids are allowed to use. Parents will also get an activity report from Family Safety that summarizes how much time the child spent on the PC, the websites they visited and the games or apps they used.
