Indeed, but Win7 has copied Amiga OS, in that it doesnt use the registry as much.
I had installed loads of games when I had vista. I never backed up the reg for each game and thought Ill just reinstall.
Turns out I didnt need to as every game worked without the registry being there in Win7. Which is nuts as the registry normally contains the dir info and serial keys for lots of games.
