The GUI is the main problem I have with using Linux as a day to day OS too. The fonts don't bother me too much, but the inconsistency between apps (such as unpredictable cut/copy/paste) is a real pain. I'm happy enough with the speed and stability of Windows and Mac OS, so annoying Linux GUI problems are the deciding factor.

Is this 2005? The last problems I hear about this were in like 2000....

"but never in OpenOffice. "
Oh sorry then, my OPenoffice also looks crappy. I just use Abiword + MS plugins instead, I think KWord isn't ready yet...
