Well, the registry is one of Microsoft's biggest mistakes. If you lose
the registry you pretty much lose the entire ball of wax. With Linux
every program, including the operating system, stores settings in *.conf
files. As long as you make a back up of the conf file in question before
editing it chances are you can easily recover and fix whatever changes
you made. Most of the time changing one conf file won't result in nuking
the entire operating system. Although, there are certain conf files you
could screw up the entire operating system with if you weren't careful.

yes, I also don't like that with the registry in Windows. Also you can
like cheat, and also, crack games. With Mac its not that easy, when it
comes down to cracking games.
