I actually preferred the relatively simple WIN.INI and SYSTEM.INI files in Windows 3.1. Text files.

You're right about OS2.INI being a binary blob, but I've not run into issues with it. No corruption, no hidden application and/or system settings, and no application dependencies on weird fields therein.

I've hit all three of those issues with Windows variants.

YMMV, I guess...
