I Disagree quite strongly.  I found the icon Zoom feature very usable, and 
I've never had any problems with it.  I find it difficult to swallow that the 
programmers who work on this stuff would be unable to overcome this 

Who decides what's "usable" anyway? :-D  Considering Linux is all about choice 
wouldn't it be better to have this in the hands of the user?  I like it, and 
from what I'm hearing many others do as well.
