I just don't understand...

1. There are so-called Type 1 fonts in X11 section
2. And there are GS fonts
3. And there are free 35 PS fonts floaing around...

Is there any reasons why we cannot you one and the
only basic fonts package for X, GS and other related
stuff (TeX is in mind...) ?

Just curious...
