So basically, Liberation is meant to be the default serif, sans-serif and
monospace in documents such as web pages? Just saw some screenshots of
Liberation being used as the system font, and while I don't think it's ugly,
I can understand what you mean. Nice to hear that Dalton Maag have been
commissioned to make a new font.
