... is there a reason that Windows 7 hides all the APPDATA directories? They're about to refresh my OS because Windows keeps losing its mind (it's rockin' when the explorer.exe process gets 2 GB of RAM). I spent a half hour looking for my bookmarks and all that to make sure it was going to get backed up.
If Microsoft didn't treat me like I was a child - and if they didn't keep changing how Windows works every 18 months (go and look at what's in Control Panel, and compare it to XP) - this would have taken 45 seconds.
I must say that this is why old Unix neck beards roll their eyes at Windows: it's a trifecta of fail:
OS processes mysteriously lose their minds? Check.
Files and menus moved around and changed every release for no reason? Check.
Developers assume that I'm an idiot and hide my files from me? Check.
What a sucking chest wound of fail, right there.
