From Uzumaki Naruto (うずまきナルト):
Uzumaki Naruto: “Iruka-sensei (うみのイルカ), why do people risk their lives for others?”
Iruka-sensei: “When someone dies, they disappear. Their past and present, along with their future. A lot of people die on missions and in wars, surprisingly quickly and easily. Hayate (月光ハヤテ) was one of them. The one who dies has his own dreams, but there are people who are treasured like those dreams. Parents, siblings, friends, and lovers, people who are important… They all believe in and help each other. People who were there since birth took care of them… And those bonds grow even stronger as time passes. It’s not just a saying. It will be so for the ones who are connected, because it is precious.”
Sometimes you meet these people who just amaze you in all they do. That make you constantly smile and you make them smile in return. They show you that happiness lies in the smallest things.
Reminiscent of an angel, taking a dip in the azure blue ocean, washing her hair and then opening her eyes to stare you full in the face…
…and then smiles.
You know who you are. ;)
And to the question why people still use Windows try setting up your X environment to properly support MathML with Firefox.
Truly, using new fonts within X is a black art still reminiscent of dark and medieval times when we did not know better. I thought we would have progressed that stage by now.
From a user perspective Windows definitely wins hands down in this, drag a file to a Fonts folder, done.
No, X wants us to use crazy incantations of mkfontdir, mkfontscale, fc-cache, ttmkfdir, xset with various fp options and hope xlsfonts shows the font you are after.
Users do NOT want to be bothered with foundries, weights, encoding types, and what not. They just want to add a font, select it in their favourite application and go: “owww, pretty!”
Is that, anno 2004, too much to ask?
