Graphics, User Interfaces One of the most important visual parts of any operating system is of course, the fonts. Many times users on the net have argued about bad quality fonts used (installed by default) on alternative OSes. For the companies or individuals who would like to resolve such issues and create original and high quality fonts for their OSes (and not just for OSes), I would like to introduce them to FontLab 4.5.1.

Would it be leagal to print another companies font unto paper, scan the paper and then use that as a guide to recreate the font in FontLab. Wouldn't that be simple reverse egineering?
