Subject RE: Replacement of WARNING.NT proposed - side thread
Date Sun, 05 Mar 2000 21:25:38 GMT
If what James and I propose is a windows-read-me.txt - then I agree with
Ryan's proposal, provided we change the name to WARNING-WIN-95-98.TXT.

Please see my additional ideas inline.  Remember who many of our 95/98 users
are, so we need to keep this language pretty basic.

I will wait till the end of the day Monday to push for these two changes to
be committed, so we can hear any additional feedback.
