I have tried a few linux .software that .but the main problem with the systems I have tried is poor fonts. the writting is not clear .and it fades in sections ..could it be I need a better graphics card .though win 98 is ok on the same hard disk .and is perfect .. has anyone else had this poor lettering on linux .I have tried various resolutions .. but no// office went on ok/ by the way

The fonts in the modern distros are much better than they used to be - I run Mandrake 9.1 and Slackware 9.0 and the fonts in both are nicely anti-aliased and at least as good as Windows.
