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.

The fact that PFA is free is not the point. OSNews is not an OSS site. We support all software, free or not, and we report on the BEST ones, not necessarily the "free" ones. Bottomline is, FontLab is much better than PFA (PFA doesn't even support TTF hints). From the PFA site:
