The policy regarding ReactOS is not going to change and I really don't
care at this point. My point in reply to Dmitry's comment was while I
agree using winecfg for msconfig functionality is fine I was just
using a reductio ad-absurdum to point out that if we are not going to
make a wrapper program for msconfig for power windows users that are
used to certain windows functionality because we don't care about them
and the windows way of doing things, then why should we care about
windows power users ablity to graphically edit the registry? In
regedits case there would be two fold argument for removing it, 1.
Because it was contributed by ReactOS developers and 2. Because we
obviously don't care about whats convenient to people coming from a
windows background using that logic.
