going way back to "triumph of the nerds",
the number-one example steve jobs used
to symbolize the absence of any esthetics
at microsoft (and thus -- by extension --
inside the head of bill gates) was the fact
they found a monospaced font acceptable.

it all goes back to a calligraphy class that
jobs "dropped in on" while he was at reed.

no. if you have a mac, and you're using a
monospace font, you _missed_ the point.

you missed the _whole_ point.
