Reading the comments of 1.9 over the forums and Twitter, I see a lot of people complaining about the guides font size. Some are saying the font is too small, and some are saying the full screen guide can fit even more if the font was smaller. Personally, I find the font size in 1.9 to be fine where it is.
So what I propose is the ultimate solution, which WILL SATISFY EVERYONE! Why not code in and offer font size options? Other providers are currently testing font size customizations in their next-gen guide, leaving it in the hands of the customer to find their ideal font size.
And while were at it, there really should be options for almost every conceivable setting, because everyone is different and how else could you please everyone? I know that might be a pipe dream, but it's something to strive for!
