Correct, though even font support is optional in AggPas. So if you don't 
render text via AggPas, it has zero dependency - everything is done in 
pure Object Pascal code.

As for font support under Windows. Yes you can use GDI for font 
rendering, but I highly recommend using freetype.dll even under Windows. 
It has more features than GDI font support and the quality is better too.
