Although Poledit can be used as a front-end to a number of configuration
values stored in the Registry it is not a registry tweaking application. Its
primary functions are the creation and modification of system policy, *.pol,
files, functions that X-setup does not perform.
It's more appropriate to compare X-setup with TweakUI, Microsoft's free
tweaking utility. We use TweakUI for several functions on our systems
including hiding desktop icons and automatic patron logon.
