Re: Backing up cygwin
Well, thanks for making me aware of the other two things that he
mentioned, although I still have no idea of what he is talking about
Now, why not store these things in goold old fuzzy and warm text
files? Registry sucks, and it sucks badly.
The reason why the mount table cannot be stored in a file is: where
would this file be located? It couldn't be under the cygwin "/" path
because, without the mount table, you don't know where that is.
And besides, CygWin is set of windows programs and it's normal for
windows programs to use the registry (and faster than text files).
