Fonts are not a crucial factor as long as they are legible, but if you are
picky, various packages like Doc2Go come with a selection of fonts which you
might prefer working with. They do not affect the fonts of the general O/S
and UI though.
What bothers me the most is the relatively large font size in basic, built-in
Palm PIM. I don't find font size to be a valid reason for purchasing an
alternative such as Agendus, only so that the resolution of the screen is
better exploited. I hope the upcoming Linux-based O/S compensates and
resolves such deficiencies which cling to past habits and slow
development/rigour. Backward compatibility is not an obstacle here.
