That depends on the definition. What I mean is that it is not set up
for images requiring lot of small dots (hence resolution). I am not
saying it shoud, but it does not display images comparable to pdf or
jpg, and this limits the visual appeal. You get ascii graphs like
-plot- in the results window. -twoway- is sent to the viewer window
instead.

Moving images with lots of small dots (because the output needs to
move up) is apparently not cheap. When I first saw Stata I was a
little taken back by the sparse display. Hence Atari. I tried
experiment with fonts but they all look "sparse" and I have not been
able to improve on Lucida, which that crams more output per vertical
space.
