@bob, I'm coming from the Windows world, so PCF fonts did not even cross my mind. I guess I have some research to do :)

You didn't really miss out, since PCF fonts are the worst quality imaginable. ;)

Don't hold you breath because it's not changing (at least not anytime soon)!

Personally, I prefer them to the fuzzy looking anti-aliased fonts.

The beauty of true-type/open-type fonts is that you can tell your font renderer how to draw them. Don't like font hinting (anti-aliasing)? Turn it off!
No such choices in PCF bitmap fonts :(

I guess we're not using fontconfig/freetype (yet) to draw fonts then, eh?

You edited your message!  ;D

I think font rendering and quality is very important for the user experience. I couldn't live without anti-aliasing and the first thing I do on any linux install (even if it supports anti aliasing and hinting out of the box) is install the Infinality bundle. Makes Linux look even better ;).

I hate absolutes  ;)

We are at the same level as xterm with regards to how we use the system resources. I don't think there are any options other than pcf at that level.

Is this new as of 135? I don't think the WOL code has been touched lately.
