After reading Tom's post, and recalling my own experience with fonts on 
Fedora, I agree with him that they can can be a very frustrating 
experience. Tom seems to know a bit more than I do about fonts, and the 
apps needed to adjust them. He has given some of his time and hardware 
resources to test Fedora 15. He calls attention to the fonts. Fonts are 
still a good discussion point. There is room for improvement with them. 
I don't think I'd criticize him, for criticizing the fonts. That is the 
purpose of testing: "these fonts have to improve!"
