I don't think so...  Linux has some nice fonts, BTW.  Win95 has nice
fonts.  Win95 have three or four full-blown office suites.  Win95's office
suites have telephone support.  MS Office has good ergonomists and good
font designers.  Why are they switching to Linux?  GOOD PROGRAMMERS!
Ergonomists, pah, the morons that designed those "ergonomic" keyboards -
apox on ergonomics!

BTW, why don't you get started on writing an office suite for Linux?  I
would, but I've got WAAY to much on my plate right now...  Do you know C?
