What do I use to open a ‘txt’ file?

A txt file is a text file and can be viewed using any text editor: vim, emacs, pico, nano, etc. from the Linux machines.  These also work on the Mac’s, as does TextEditor.app.  On Windows, try the Notepad.

There are also handfuls of document editors that run as GUI’s:  TextEditor.app, MS Word, OpenOffice.org – Writer, etc.
