[huskerlug] Re: Security Fix - Microsoft Update Quietly Installs Firefox Extension

The layout of it is pretty scatterbrained, but they've been locked  
into that format for compatibilities sake for quite a while.   
Proprietary *nix apps store their config files in /etc and I've had  
license config files installed there.  Even if that wasn't the case  
though, the registry is simply a place to store settings for software/ 
hardware.  I suppose it'd be a mix of /etc and /dev along with a few  
other fhs points.
