Ah see now I agree with both of these. Good points.
For the first one, what do you propose as an answer? Obviously going to a
bunch of separate text files you have to configure gets away from that
single point of failure of a single registry but adds all sorts of
management issues and having to chase all over to gather info about what is
on your machine. What is the right answer to this one?
The second one, I concur completely, get the App stuff out of the Windows

Well, lets see, moving away from the Registry (single point of failure)
would be a good step.
Separating the operating system from programs would be great, I don't like
the fact that everything and it's brother thinks it can or should dump files
into the system directory.
What else is flawed? What other changes should be made?
