A major opportunity lost for the windows world
Windows main inherent problem is the registry: DLL technology that's older than the sun that's still around, and is pretty much polar to all the security problems and holes that exist, and a technology that's central to pretty much all windows software development
the other major problem is excatly that, Microsoft doesn't want to lose it's developer base by changing everything. so the Registry is still in Vista, and so it's in the Windows OS for another 5 years. they need to transition, they need to jump ship like Apple has done with OS9. but when?
64bit. everything needs to be rewritten for the 64bit transition, so didn't microsft take this opportunity to rid Windows 64bit of the registry??
argh it makes me angry.
