Comment: Re:System Registry (Score 2) 583

Not to rain on your hate parade, but in addition to the comments about the CONF files, the registry also makes Windows much easier to manage on an enterprise scale.

I can create an application, put its settings in the registry, and boom -- I can manage it through an MMC for thousands of computers with only the creation of a policy template to change settings.

The misunderstanding of the registry's use is always what people hated about it, sadly.

Because its nearly impossible to edit a file remotely through scripting. Right..

Besides if Microsoft went this route they would modify the interface so you could still use policys to edit it just as you always did.
