Don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone

Kathleen Atkins

It should be no surprise to learn that people love some fonts and hate others.

Oddly, it turns out that people can be just as particular about their screen cursors. In the Windows 7 forum, Lounge member Gromek laments the paucity of cursor-icon choices. He’s looked everywhere, he thinks, for a better cursor — one he knows used to exist in XP. Fellow Loungers offer their insights.
