Emacs hate mail

Regular readers will know I'm keen on getting good-looking fonts in Emacs under Linux. And so are a lot of other people, judging by how popular my Emacs/Xft posts have been.

I have found out this is enough to drive some people to me sending nastygrams.

I don't know who you are, but...

Emacs is a programmers editor. Sure, scalable fonts would be good for GNUEmacs, but they are not a necessity.

If you want the wysiwyg experience, try XEmacs, I don't like XEmacs, but you are welcome to try it.

I have used GNU/Emacs for the last 12 years as a code editor.  I like it just fine, and that is an understatement.  Leave it alone.
