I was able to notice it on my Matrox G200 8MB AGP running at 1280x1024. I

While it looked nice and all, there were a couple of annoyances that made me
1) I was only able to use MS fonts. That meant I had to download them using
fetchmsttfonts. I don't have Windows and couldn't copy them. The biggest
thing, of course is that I was unable to use any of the plethora of X fonts
