Was The Windows Registry a Good Idea?
Was The Windows Registry a Good Idea? No

Was it better than the implementation of INI files? Yes

Solution : A better implementation of ini files

The two things it solved was speed and centralisation
Ini files are slow, but don't need to be?
Ini files are scattered but don't need to be

If I run a program I would expect it to save my settings in my space not in it's program folder, not in the system folder, not hidden somewhere (seemingly randomly) in the registry, if it's a global setting - isn't that what All Users is for?
