It's a matter of taste but I'm inclined to agree with you. However, you
can get used to them if you use the console a lot, and I don't think
there is anything else easily available if you want a decent sized font.
Have a look at the use of a VARIANT for quickly changing font size on a
particular terminal. The setupcon manual explains it well.
