Graphics, User Interfaces You probably missed this earth-shattering news, but Ikea IKEA, the Swedish furniture and other assorted home decoration products company, has switched fonts. The company always used the Futura font for its catalogues, but the latest edition has ditched it in favour of Verdana. This has caused quite the stir among typography geeks.

"I posit the various Vi vs Emacs, KDE vs GNOME, etc. debates that have raged geekosphere.


The overheated posts on those debates are equally stupid.
"
Then why partake in them?

Let me quote Yahtzee:

People are shit. Whenever I'm in a crowd I think to myself 'who left this shit all over the place'? I'm shit, you're shit, the world is shit, and if you're sitting there thinking "Yes it's true! Everyone is shit except me!", then you're a double-bacon shit with large fries, mr Shitface.

You may have noticed that i said "overheated posts", not the discussions themselves.
