Hi Shaun,
Oh, don't get me started on the Windows registry. I hate the Windows registry with a passion simply because it is too easy to get damaged. One thing I do when I am repairing someone's system i always run a registry scan on them using Registry Mechanic or Registry Fix, and I usually get back a couple thousand errors which I have to tell it to scan and repair. Often times as not after I scan and repair the Windows registry the system performs better, runs faster, and there are less errors. So I'd say the registry is a prime candidate for Windows instability on a large percentage of computer systems. Other operating systems Mac OS, Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris, etc do not have a registry and tend to be much more stable and reliable than Windows. Instead of a system registry they store all of their settings in *.conf files located in the /etc and /usr/etc directories. Not only can you edit them by hand if you wish it is easy to backup and save your favorite configurations to an external drive. If you do a full system install you can simply restore your favorite *.conf files, and in seconds it is back the way it was before you reinstalled the system. Pretty cool eh? Anyway, we are getting way off the topic of games. So let's try and get this topic back on topic or close it.


Thanks.
