Because it's easier for Windows to read its own registry and write a
portable ASCII file than it is for Linux, as you'd have to implement a
'fs' driver for it. Not that I think this is all necessarily a good idea

Before you know, people will go back to Windows to change their IP
address in Linux because they don't know how to do it there.
