Might be a true type font server.  True type fonts scale better than most
bitmap fonts (which are the generally what you get by default on Linux).  I
noticed RH 6.1 runs "xfs", a font server, by default.  I just wasn't aware
that it supported true type fonts.  

Enlightenment loads some cool fonts.  They even look really good on my
laptop, even though most other fonts don't look so great.  But then,
Enlightenment makes use of an embedded font renderer (freetype and fnlib).
