    In my experience, most of them are due to corrupted files/drivers and utterly random memory read errors (I get lots of those, however there's nothing wrong with my memory or anything else in this machine, except windows).

    Y'know, I've never even TRIED to figure out the Registry. At some point, if I end up working with Windows computers, I'm sure I will, but I have no inclination currently to waste my time.

    On the other hand, I'm able to look at virtually any Linux config file and figure out what's going on (sometimes with man page help).


    Keep it that way. The current way makes it so much easier to understand.

    The most I've ever done with the registry is remove some entries while trying uninstall and application by hand because the installer failed.

    IBM AIX has Object Data Manager for storing such configurations...
