Bo: thanks for this great write up!

Is it ok if you/I write a small article on blog.qgis.org or qgis.nl or
qgis.dk and point to the english version of your writeup?

https://github.com/Frederikssund/Alternativ-QGIS-installation/blob/master/Readme%20-%20english.md

I think a lot of organisations/windows system admins will be greatfull
to you!

By the way, in my view the default storing mechanism of settings should
be ini file based anyway! I'll try to bring this up on the dev list again.

Regards,

Richard Duivenvoorde
