    Re: Windows does have a use! Shock!

    I generally agree with your comments, except this part. MS doesn't "demand" anything. They offer a product for a price, if you don't agree with the price, you certainly don't have to buy it. ...

    Re: Windows does have a use! Shock!

    I was, kind of, rambling there. I didn't mean you specifically (even though I quoted you).

    Just in general - I think that many of the XPvsOSXvsLinux comments/articles I read seem to be comparing...

    Re: Windows does have a use! Shock!

    Yea, OSX is pretty slick. It's better than XP except for two major issues. The thing is, they are issues that are deal breakers for a lot of people:

    1. Nearly every piece of desktop software...

    Re: Windows does have a use! Shock!

    What I find strange is people who think they must choose a side, and if they choose gnu/linux, then they are required to bash MS at every opportunity.

    There are a lot of reasons why people (me...

    Re: HOWTO: Hoary ClearType-like fonts

    Most serif fonts (e.g. times new roman) do not look good on a computer display. They are more appropriate for printing. Sans serif fonts always look better on a monitor.

    In my opinion, Verdana...
  7. Re: nice article :MSN Messenger 7: consolidating Windows' lock-in strategy?

    I live in Montreal, and MSN is the standard here, it seems. Not only do all my gaming friends use it, but my employer does too.

  8. Re: When are he gnome firefox icons coming back?

    Agreed. I'm very surprised to see the default Firefox buttons. Sigh, I wonder if they simply overlooked it? Or was this on purpose?
  9. Re: OMG, they have butchered the Human theme!

    I like the new colors. Took me a good 10 minutes to get used to it, though. Now I'm fully acclimated to it. ;)
  10. Re: OMG, they have butchered the Human theme!

    Hehe :) But seriously, perhaps you should adjust the contrast? If your contrast (white level) is as high as you describe, then it's likely that your monitor is incorrectly setup.

  11. Re: OMG, they have butchered the Human theme!

    I don't mean to be daft, but you do know you can change themes? Personally I care less about the default, since I know I'll change it anyway.

    To be honest, I'm burned out on 95% of all themes...

    Re: HOWTO: Rockin fonts in Gnome..

    I think it was generous of MS to (sort of) release these. Some of these fonts have no peer. They are widely regarded as simply the best fonts in the world for displaying text on a computer screen....

    Re: Ubuntu Logo Suggestion: Medicine Mask

    I agree completely with spark. Defaults do make a important first impression... and the Clearlooks Human theme is a rather dramatic improvement over the old one.

    Re: Tahoma font with Windows look

    I think you are mistaken. MS Sans Serif hasn't been used since win98? XP uses Tahoma for nearly everything. Window title bars are Trebuchet.
