    Good of you powhitetrash, to make a choice and stick with it.

    Not everybody is as "skilled" as others, but we all learn from each other, sometimes small, sometimes big...

    That's the power of the Pinguin! To be able to help others and to have an open mind on things, that's what makes Linux great.

    That's not needed, If you own a MS Windows copy, you can simply add their fonts. I'm not sure if this is legal though...

    PS: This is the only reason why I ever used their(MS) CD

    The more I learn, the more I realize I don't know.

    Not necessarily. Have you ever been in a seminar or a training session when the instructor asks "Does anyone have any questions?" and even though you haven't the foggiest idea what he/she's been trying to teach you, you *still* don't know enough to ask a good question?

    As you learn more about something, you eventually learn what questions to ask.
