The following text files should end in ".txt"
AUTHORS
COPYING
INSTALL
NEWS
README
THANKS
VERSION

making them
Authors.txt and so on. Also this isn't unix so you could
name the files Authors.txt instead of AUTHORS,
because we windows people don't have to put up with
that type of annoyance :).
Cheers,
Christian

    Well actually we have many many linux users :)

    But we thought about to get rid of the people who can't
    find/open the readme :)

    Hi qbix79,
    I don't doubt that the naming convention you've implimented
    isn't perfect for unix users and I think in the unix distro it
    should stay that way. However, Windows users shouldn't get
    screwed in the process. Why not name the files correctly for
    their platform too?
    Thanks,
    Christian Blackburn

    If you created routines to auto-generate these text files
    during compiling, this would be easy to fix. A Win32
    compile could save these as .txt, and Linux as (no
    extension)

    Then, you wouldn't have to worry about it any longer, and
    when DOSBox is ported to other platforms, you'd have it all
    set up, ready to go.

    Reopening this bug:

    hmmm might be an idea.
    but under win32 we don't use a makefile.
    but there we could in the post buildstate rename the files
    to one if a .txt extionsion. and under linux do nothing.
