Linux After reading yet another "why Linux is not ready for the desktop" article/discussion, I decided that, as someone who uses Linux exclusively at home, its about time I wrote my response to the attitudes expressed. I have been using Linux since January 1999 (Red Hat 5.2 off of a cover disc).

Horrible font 4 windows? Are you serious?

This is one of the things MS does right. In fact, it has never been an issue for windows users.

The font rendering on Linux is just UGLY. Yes, I know the Bitstream Vera fonts, still not as good as MS's Arial, Times New Roman and Courier New.

I just can't stand religous guys who even try to convince everybody that Linux shortcomings are ACTUALLY GOOD. Zealots.
