Re: As soon as Windows 7 support finishes

"Registry changes are WAY more dangerous than running a somewhat cryptic command line in an unusual case using LINUX."

No - Registry changes are safer for several reasons. You have per key ACLs and auditing, you have atomic transaction commits with rollback and snapshot capability and above all it's a single interface, a single location and a standard format for all configuration data. Windows stopped using crappy solutions like INI files many years ago - Linux has yet to catch up.
