XEmacs without anti-aliased fonts looks horrendously ugly, IMHO, and
I can't think of an application that doesn't use anti-aliased fonts.
Maybe vi? (OK, OK, cheap shot, I retract the slur.)
I use Xft all the time, and have done so with both 21.4 and 21.5, but
I use non-standard configure options:
What do you use XEmacs for? Because XEmacs has such a diverse user base
it is interesting what some people consider "absolute must" and others
I tend to have two types of apps. I edit a lot of code and spend a lot
of time looking at stuff with terminal windows. For this I am happy
without anti-aliased fonts. Probably just because I am used to it.
The other type of app I use is more graphically oriented: web browser,
mail client, IM. These are usually anti-aliased.
And getting back to usage, there was a comment on this list along the
lines of "everybody needs unicode support". The only time I touch
unicode is for some strings in windows drivers (such as the registry
path). I have never needed to display unicode, so I always wondered
what people used it for in XEmacs.
Sorry for the rambling.
