BRU using 'MS Sans Serif' as default font for dialog, on a
newer OS like Windows XP I think it is better to use 'MS
Shell Dlg' so BRU can use the default system font that the
user currently use like 'Microsoft Sans Serif' or any other
font which is TrueType Font ('MS Sans Serif' are not).

A TTF font would looks good on Windows XP because it will be
anti-aliased if the user activate the 'smooth edges of screen
font' (assume ClearType method were used). On older Windows
like 2000/ME/98 this won't help much though, as these do not
provide ClearType.

Not really a bug (I think just a misconfiguration):
If installing BRU with installer on Windows 2000, the installer
will ask for Service Pack 2 (or 3? was my friend
computer) installed. The BRU it self runs fine without the SP
(manual install from the zip package).

Thank for reading my mail...
and sorry for my poor English ^_^

Many thanks for the tip regarding the font, I will investigate that.

With regards to the service pack, you are corret it will run. However, nobody should be using Windows 2000 without the service packs anyway, so I'm not too concerned.
