Windows usable, not fixable; Linux fixable, not usable

"

This is fine to say if you?re someone who only uses machines and not someone who fixes them. My biggest problem is that Windows is not fixable once the registry has gotten corrupt, even if the files are not corrupt the registry is Windows achilles heel.

For example if you have a problem with an application, for this example Office and you try the "Repair Office installation" and it doesn't work or you try "Reinstall Office" and that doesn't work, then you would try removing Office completely but that doesn't seem to fix the problem."
