Simple. However a binary registry (called profile) does exist
however I never used it.

The registry has been designed as a faster alternative to all the little ini files in other systems.

And it is faster. The only problem with the registry is that it can get cluttered and it is a single point of failure. if the registry gets corrupted, the computer might not work anymore, that is not the case with all the small ini files.

Here you can get information on the pros and cons of the registry:
