Mike,

Yes it is reasonable to expect them to produce a product that works on 
the systems that they advertise it for. Perhaps for some the garbled 
y-axis is a "cosmetic" problem. For me it is essential, since I use Mathematica
in both class lectures and seminars, and it is seriously unprofessional 
to have the junked up y-axis labels and any other non-horizontal text 
lables. As I have said before, mat lab has figured out how to make their 
labels work correctly under linux, unix, mac, ...; so, it is possible.
