i thought m0n0wall was a really cool project, but now i'm starting to have
some doubts..
Galeon, Konqueror, Epiphany-browser, Mozilla-firebird ? Linux-starters, FreeBSD-starters ?
(how can you choose the most insecure browser of the Internet as your main target ?)
is Tahoma is a freely available font known to all these people ? (i never
heard of it)
perhaps you should consider making a Tahoma-disclaimer in m0n0wall then, as i think i'm not
the only person *not* using Internet Explorer
