I’d say they played too *little* with OS X.  That, or they tried to clone it without grokking it first.

The standard Mac OS X font picker *does* have a Fixed Width option.

The only GUI text editors on my Mac OS X box that don’t use this mechanism to select fonts are cross-platform apps that make you edit a JSON file to change fonts.  (Sublime Text and Visual Studio Code.)

And ironically, editing a config file to change fonts is more Unixy than Mac OS X.

CentOS has a GUI?  Since when?

My CentOS GUI is called SecureCRT. :)
