--So many tweaks need to made to the registry
--why we have to use the folders in "Documents and Settings" (man, talk about a mess)
This was a try to make the pc multi user ready with different settings per user and in the same time global settings for all users.
Mainly from interest for companies.
--why dll files have to go to a common windows system directory
--what's the point of shared files in the "common files" folder
See, all apps need an file-open and an file-save dialog, yes?
So why should every coder invent the wheel new?
The meaning is to have just one file open/save function in an seperate, central lying DLLs all coders can use.
An advantage of this is that all app have the same look and behaviour. (well the most)
--why do certain companies insist of branding their name across multiple subfolders
(ie Adobe) c:\program files\adobe\acrobat\acrobat 8.0\acrobat.exe gimme a break
Perhaps to have all installed apps sorted out?
adobe\acrobat\acrobat reader 5
adobe\acrobat\acrobat reader 7
Better to have all sorted in one main folder
then having several main folder of different apps of the same vendor.
