Follow-up Comment #2, patch #2829 (project freeciv): > I'd say having files with UNIX file endings on Windows is not a > big problem, since they can be opened with WordPad. True, but it's not a problem most Windows users are familiar with, I think -- a typical non-Unix-literate user will just double-click on the file, see text all munged together, and not know how to get a sensible display.
In the same vein, it would be useful if we shipped files in the Windows installer with names like README.txt rather than plain README (which Windows doesn't know what to do with). However, implementing these suggestions is a can of worms if not done carefully. _______________________________________________________ Reply to this item at: <http://gna.org/patch/?2829> _______________________________________________ Message sent via/by Gna! http://gna.org/ _______________________________________________ Freeciv-dev mailing list Freecivemail@example.com https://mail.gna.org/listinfo/freeciv-dev
