Thank you!

Not everybody wants to see the line numbers.

Thank you!  Using [NEW] on 3 years old entries usually shows that the
document isn't worth reading.

There is an xterm by Thomas Dickey, but rxvt is better anyway.

We actually have a list in INSTALL.  It's slightly different.  Perhaps
it's better to have that list in one place.

MC should compile with Cygwin.  The NT port is broken, but not hopelessly.
I don't think that any MS DOS ports make sence.  I'm quite sure that the
DOS code has never been integrated.

I'm also removing the reference to the photographs of the authors.  This
page was actually very cool.  I miss it.  I remember how proud I was to be
on that page!  Many early developers of MC are now well known as Linux
kernel developers (Jakub Jelinek, Pavel Machek) and GNOME programmers
(Radek Doulik).

Please don't.  This URL is temporary.  I just don't have time to organize
it on the GNOME site.

I'm applying your patch.  Thank you!
