    Changing the fonts
    You know how on a pc you can change the default font that is on the computer? (Like the font in system preferances and etc) Can you do that on a mac? If so, how?

    You need a program called "Silk" from Unsanity and $10.
    I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

    Or Tinkertool from versiontracker.com and 0$.


    It might seem a little odd that OS X doesn't let you do this itself, but I think it's because a large part of the mac experience is about UI consistency and usability - both of which are governed by strict human interface guidelines... (although apple likes breaking them every so often apparently - I'm looking at you iTunes 7 )

    :p

    I didn't know TinkerTool could do that! For Free no less!

    Right you are!

    Tinkertool is very cool... although I think it basically just tweaks hidden system preferences - it doesn't actually add anything itself.
