At least you made the effort to try something new. Bravo on you for
that sir. While I understand if you decide to stay withing your area of
comfort for a long time, I would like to suggest, based on the
description of the problems you posted here, that the difficulty you had
here is with a faulty pc, and nothing to do with the OS.
Either way, thank you for the follow-up and feedback, and good luck to
you in your future computer efforts.
