  • In the end I think this may be a by-product of screensize..

    I've had several people walk by my 17" Sony 200GS running at 1280x1024 with a 14pt monospace font in gvim, commenting "how can you read that?" and "isn't that too small?" when I myself have NO problem reading it.

    Are they suffering from Windows-itis, where instead of making the default fontsize be 72dpi like Apple has done since the first Mac for desktop-publishing purposes, it was set to 96dpi (thereby forcing users to increase the fontsize)? Or is it just because I'm running a desktop that's much larger than normal for a 17" display (which technically (again according to the Apple monitor spec) should be running at 832x624 not 800x600) thereby making the displayed fonts smaller than usual.

    Again, *I* have no problem reading it. Hell I even wear glasses and have no problem reading it.
