Well, that is mostly the same content as we have on this page: http://openmw.org/wiki/index.php?title= ... ment_Setup
At the current state there is not much difference between the two tasks. Also, what you describe for Linux on the new page is more compiling than installing. And the "Play !" part is obviously nonsense at this stage.
So, a "README" page would be more adapted ?
Actually, I have no idea. Nico, wrote the roadmap entry. You will have to ask him, what he had in mind.
The install instructions (which could very well be put into a README.txt too but is nice to have as a separate page on the Wiki) is meant for non-developers trying to install OpenMW. It should IMHO be a separate page from setting up a developers environment, even though the pages (at the moment) contain similar information.
Right now we only have sources for Linux, so I think using a copy of the instructions from the devenv for Linux is OK (or we could just link to it.) We can change it later if/when it becomes necessary.
But, should it be a "README" page on the wiki ?
