Is beauty only pixel deep? Fonts in Linux

LinuxJournal.com has a column about dealing with fonts in Linux. "The real problem with fonts under Linux (under X actually) is the many different ways of handling fonts, not to mention different font types. We have both bitmap and outline fonts; which further break down into Speedo fonts, portable compiled fonts, Type1, TrueType, ghostscript fonts and others. This is one place where 'more than one way to do it' hasn't paid off."
