An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Bill Gates and his daughter's computer habits!

Well..if you are Bill Gates’ kid and you get hooked on to the internet and computers, then thats pretty bad isnt it? He could probably put enough software in that Vista thing to stop her from even seeing an active screen after 45 minutes!! Wow… and MSFT wants to sell computers to kids early in schools and get them hooked up!

The Microsoft founder said his 10-year-old daughter, his oldest child, was not a hard-core Internet and computer user until this year, when she started at a school where the students use tablet computers for almost everything.

"She became very avid and discovered a lot of computer games, including one that runs on the

Xbox 360 called Viva Pinata, where you take care of your garden," he told a business audience in Ottawa.

"She could spend two or three hours a day on this Viva Pinata, because it’s kind of engaging and fun."

Gates said he and his wife Melinda decided to set a limit of 45 minutes a day of total screen time for games and an hour a day on weekends, plus what time she needs for homework.
