    I used all of those. The console version of Vim was quite nice. Unfortunately, Apple's X11 implementation made AbiWord and especially OpenOffice.org nearly unusable.

    I don't care if my widget sets don't all match perfectly, but when the fonts are as bad as they were in OO.o, it wasn't worth using.
