Yes, almost..

gcc has this convention.

Intel Fortran compiler interprets ".f" as fixed format Fortran source
(not necessarily Fortran 77).

MIPSpro Fortran compilers have separate f77 and f90. E.g. f77 compiles f90
source but warns that f77 linker is used. Anyway, ".f" is interpreted as
fixed format Fortran source again.
