Terrible. Users who find the default too large should have no trouble using
the tool to make fonts smaller. Those with the opposite problem may not be
able to see to make a change.

Windoz defaults to 8pt, and that's way too small even when set to large fonts
(120 DPI).

Not all users are under 40 years old. Older people as a group can't see as
well as those younger. We don't need to alienate them by making Ubuntu hard
for them to use.
