010001111209015dMe. I take a lot of effort to write these.
To reflect on myself, what I’ve done.
How my coworkers act upon them.
How easily let them understand my knowledge.
And yet, here you are.
Putting me in tears.
You can hurt people like that.
It’s not funny.
EDIT: Where is my whiskey
brocklee2915dThis might just be a me thing, but I feel more inclined to read a README if it has a .md extension rather than a .txt extension.
iamai111414dWhen you are too cheap to buy original softwares CDs, you find the crack instructions in the readme.
Kneko1614dI do read them xD
Even though if its not crack notes xD
Katakompe31714dI'm usually very submissive to the point where I do what filenames tell me to.
JFK422563514dMore likely to read a readme.md than a readme.txt
kamen521114dI do, although I also prefer Markdown to plain text these days.
thebiochemic4414di'm always happy to have a good README.md that goes with a project. Makes life easier for folks out there, and doesn't take that much time for devs to make one, since they are in the matter of the project anyway.
Personally i love README.md + doxygen docs.
Trithon111414dI don't. I read README.md files tho =]
Ngl most of those are excellent documentation for whatever tool|library|program it's for.
Hazarth13999dI read both md and txt, readme, instructions, install... Whatever, someone put them there for a reason
hjk10123729dI guess they are read more since we use repository services like Bitbucket and GitHub. They put the README files on full display (and other software/platforms seem to follow)
