WTF are fonts for??

Thank you for a detailed comparison. Yeah slide shows can be poo, but that's a problem of implementation; it's not necessarily the tool's fault.

This caught my eye and left me scratching my head:
"PowerPoint's Pack and Go (a.k.a. Package for CD) tool, which under either name is found in the File menu. Yet, since several font foundries have objected to this tool as a means for illegally redistributing proprietary fonts..."

OK, so you spent money for some fonts, and then what- no one else is allowed to look at them?? Crikey. The world is getting stranger all the time.
