Well, in VGA text mode it's still plenty big, and a lot more usable than


Do you mean with VESA / graphical console?  I don't think it will affect
that.  I had a look at the list of fonts in wsfont.c, and it looks like the
two existing fonts we have would be selected before the one I added
(FONT_BOLD8x16, FONT_BOLD16x32).  So nothing should change there.  It will
only affect VGA text mode.
