End of an era -- Microsoft finally caves.

:cry:

Windows Notepad fixed after 33 years: Now it finally handles Unix, Mac OS line endings
The Register
... Microsoft has thoughtfully provided an out for Windows users counting on the app's past inflexibility: the new behavior can be undone with a registry key change.
Like anyone knows how to do that. Bastards. :evil:

Anyone that cares about reverting to the broken method probably knows.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"
