I'll take even the most archiac confi files over the registry any day.
The problem with config files is that sometimes they can be difficult for GUI tools to parse. Databases like the registry are easier for the computer to write/read from consistently. Well, at least I think that was the idea behind the windows registry. However, I don't think even windows really knows how to read/write to it either. So you are left with a configuration that can't be understood by either man or machine.

Why? I personally love config files. What would you prefer? The registry?
