Nope. And certainly not from where I've sat for several years.

I'd guess you're massively wrong.

And before you start, are you prepared to put down, out of your personal
wallet, the money for eye surgery for me, to give me 15/20 vision, so I
can read the damn thing? You *really* enjoy looking at videos, or even
trying to read email, either at 2-3 words per line, or in 3 point type?
And while we're at it, I suggest you look at, say, the official MySQL
documentation on your itty-bitty-screen. I do it, on a browser set at
about a quarter of a 22" diagonal screen, and *still* see the idiots have
some of the formatting set so that it overprints.
