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.
