Subject: Was Helvetica the Font (Typeface) of the '80s?

You probably very well know it by now, but one font that really just tells you that you're "stuck in the '80s" if you are reading lots of stuff in this font. Just like the '00s with Trubechet MS (Popularized by XP with it's menu bars),

Here is a funny poster describing this font:

Part of it's popularity may also have come from the fact that it was a default Macintosh font as well.
