It was during the days of Windows XP and slowly moving out from it through Windows Vista. During those time we had seen complete emergence of desktop computer and that was attached more or less with the presence of assembly of computers. During those time the laptop given by my MBA schools became out of order and it is a compelling situation to have another computer to work on various subjects.
During those times cost of branded computers are on higher side and for this many shops offers the functionalities of assembled computers. Me and daddy went to nearby computer shop at Puri, Odisha and the name of that shop at that time was ‘Sanjukta Elelctronics’ and they offer us low cost assembled computer so that we can use it and run Windows XP with it.
They provide us the pirated version of Windows XP professional which I formatted and delete it and then instal it original version of Windows XP and during that time I had two original version of Windows XP and I installed on of it and then download the genuine updates from Microsoft site.
It takes some minutes considering the speed on internet, though during that time the speed of Vodafone 2G internet was good and quite good considering when we compare it with dial-up connectivity of BSNL durig those times when we used to connect it with landline socket.
The CRT monitor takes huge amount of electricity and during the summer season when it is especially on peal in between mid of June and July working with CRT monitor generates huge amount of heat so when we compare it with now LCD monitors which are cooler and good to eyes provide huge amount of releif to work on with and the less amount of heat due to environmental friendly situaitons makes it very comfortable to work on with.
The assembled computer takes huge form of space, and bigger table is the need of the hour as it needs to provide space for CRT monitor, CPU, UPS, and keyboard and mouse in order to computer to run with normal circumstances. It takes more time to load and the booting time is higher than that of when it is compared with laptop booting points. It works nicely and provides a way of faster computing points.
With, introduction of Service Pack 3 for Windows XP the computer becomes faster and that provides a way to work with nicely and if it provides a way of slowness then there are options to reformat windows and it becomes easier. One need to remember that, always do the clean installation of Windows and that means, apart from system drive of Windows, other logical drive needs to be cleaned and well formated, so that all the drive such as system and logical drive needs to be cleaned and perfected in order to have cleaned Windows installation.
The importance of Windows XP is that the way you want to customise and you can do it in what so ever ways and that means, that, I can customise in whatsoever ways and in what so ever ways, and then customise it and that is the power of Windows, during that time, as compared to Windows & and above the liberty with us is now curtailed and shortened but while considering the security of data and other parameters, current windows are far more secure but the liberty with us to customise as it is never ever similar to the days of Windows XP and during that time, the liberty to work on with Windows is far more easier with plenty of customisation options but the security of data all comes to the mind is really difficult to find.
