yeah, . . . why?
When trying to apply Windows concepts to UNIX which will just make it
frustrating for yourself, embrace it's difference, treat it like a new
fruit, don't constrain it within the bounds of something familliar - you
lose something of it's richness.

Hey why don't we keep the entire sytsem configuration in a centralised
database that's loaded in memory all the time ? . . .
That way, it'll use up memory, and give the user nothing in return. Also,
the more software someone installs, the more memory it will take up, and the
slower their system will run ! ! ! !
And when someone wants to copy an application from one system to another,
they'll have to
search all sorts of places in the registry to find other bits & components
of the app.
What a lousy shower of tossers . . . .
