    Ugh, the registry. Oh how I hate the Windows Registry. I hate it more than other Microsoft mistakes like Microsoft Bob and Windows ME. If there is any one reason to go to a non-windows system and you don't have any apps or games that are Windows only, it is the infamous Windows Registry. I'd rather deal with a cluttered mess of .INI files than deal with the registry. Screw programs needing to talk to each other directly. Make programs to do one thing and do it exceptionally well. Then pipe the output of one into the input of another.

    Many years ago when we ran NT 4.0 on our agency PCs, I was the PC coordinator at the time and I had limited administrative privileges. We had a custom login screen which could be edited via the registry editor. One of our co-workers had a grandchild, and so I hacked the registry on her machine such that the login screen congratulated her on the new family addition; she got a real kick out of it!!

    The only registry error I’ve ever gotten was when I moved steam from one hard drive to another and it could find it because the registry was telling it that it was in the old place so I had to redownload steam all the games rip but it saved everything thankfully because I saved the save caches and everything

    I ran a registry cleaning program once, I removed some entries that my printer needed and also some that my scanner needed, I had to re-install the driver for each oneHaving said that I bought I Auzentech HDA-explosion sound card many years ago to replace a sound blaster card, when I ran the original Half Life I had no sound. SO I went into the registry and searched for Sound blaster, any entry that popped up I deleted. The sound in Half life worked fine after that hack

    3:46 FALSE. Why do you think speed/performance wise, windows is "kind of ok" when you just fresh-installed it, but then gets slower and slower over weeks/months (or sometimes even days) of use? Yes, there is FRAGMENTATION within your "system registry". Like in most database systems, old entries are marked as "deleted" but still have to be skipped every single time it's in the way of..well, in this case, the pretty huge number of (who knows how many) searches that go on at any given time, even if your computer seems completely idle (do a quick search for: windows registry protocol analysis) - these "marked for deleted" items are still actually present until the database is "purged" or "rewritten" to a new file. In the mean time, new space needs to be allocated for new entries, something your filesystem (yes, even FAT or NTFS) does perfectly well when you have good old, plain, text files. (mind you, not ONE HUGE text file for ALL the settings of ALL software on the whole computer, that would get..... well, like windows acutually)Problem is, this purge/rewrite opreation never happens in windows. I guess they "forgot" to add that feature in windows 95, and "never got around to it" afterwards.
