Yes, the registry sucks for the user but, truth be told, it is much faster than any config file. It doesn't seem like much nowadays, with the average PC being equipped with CPUs running @ 1+ Ghz, but back in the 133 Mhz times it was relevant. Specially for apps like Office with a bazillion configuration options.
