After several Blue-Screen warnings, the crash of my old HDD caused an immense loss to me. I lost almost everything except some backups in my Google Drive and USB Flash. I had to start from new.

Throwing off my old HDD into a dustbin, I started my digital journey again with a fresh HDD along with a different OS with which I had no prior experience except several good impressions and acceptable logics.

The slow response time, vulnerability to security made me literally furious with the Microsoft Windows OS. The next important thing was — piracy. I was using a lot of pirated applications including the OS itself. Interruption in the work was an everyday routine. I’ve found, almost each of the computers in my office network was a Virus Factory. These were seriously hampering response time and causing performance failure. Suppose: I was using a slideshow while conducting a class. In the middle of my journey, while I was attempting to play the linked media file, the system started malfunctioning. It started displaying various unstable messages like– Loading, Not Responding, Unknown Error blah blah blah. Interestingly that was not the end. After the class, when students were asking for the slide, inserting a flash drive in the system was almost a nightmare. Viruses working on ‘Auto Run’ mood used to add more pains like– file disappearing, creating shortcuts and what not!

The worst case used to happen during the corporate presentation. Over the last several days I had spent a lot of time to create a stunning presentation. And on the grand day, when I was about to present the slide, I started experiencing a malfunction. ‘The program is not responding’ was a common issue. Imagine the situation – You are in a professional presentation event, some important persons are waiting in front of you to listen to you, and you can’t move just because your system halted 😀  And if it was someone else’s computer, there was a great chance, my file would be eaten by a virus.

Pretty unstable, unreliable system which always kept me worrying.
