Fun fact: you can't name any file anywhere in windows 10 "aux.txt" or "aux" anything with any extension, because it was a reserved name in CP/M before dos was a thing.

If you commit "aux.txt" to a git repo, you break it for windows users. If you distribute "aux.txt" in a zip file, windows computers cannot extract it without error.

@unlofl maybe I'm the minority here but I'm not down with Windows bashing. I like both and both have their flaws.


@Emmdee you are a fresh account with a hot take! :cate:

You don't HAVE TO hate on it, but Windows is bad, because it is badly made by a company that is bad. If someone does all the extra work to make it do something you like, great.
