Alas Apple, Wherefore Art Thy System Fonts

Some font, uh..., whiz (?) laments at Apple's lack of new fonts to complement the Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard.

He heaped praise (grudgingly) on Microsoft for endowing Vista a good looking font or two.

Then again, people won't notice that their new Mac OS X does not sport a brand spankin' new font that looks grrrreat on their monitor but they will surely notice that their brand spankin' new Vista is throwng a hissy fit because it is not running on the latest and greatest hardware. And decides to annoy you with lots lots lots and lots of UAC, allow or disallow? And will not print because your printer is 2 months old.

Who knows, maybe part of nip and tuck (as well as liposuction here and there) on Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard will include a new font or two.
